She’s not a teacher or a fluent speaker – she just wants to practise te reo Māori with you! Join Leonie Hayden as she works through the first six weeks of Scotty Morrison’s Māori Made Easy, thanks to Penguin Random House NZ.
Today’s new sentence marker ‘kua’ can be a tricky one, but luckily it’s not called Māori Made Hard! Scotty M breaks it down for us nice and easy.
Now we’re at alert level three, you can buy books again! If you didn’t get the chance to buy one before lockdown, grab your copy of Māori Made Easy here and at all good bookstores. You can find all of my Māori Made Easy posts here and start from the beginning if you want!

As well as doing this with me, you can sign up for Toro Mai and learn with real teachers! They’re free online te reo Māori and tikanga Māori lessons created by Stacey and Scotty Morrison.
