‘Te Reo Ākina with Ra Pomare’ – Day Two: Māori Language Week 2016


Māori Language Week is upon us and to celebrate, The Spinoff has teamed up with Ra Pomare and Mana magazine to bring you ‘Te Reo Ākina with Ra Pomare’.

Funded by Te Māngai Pāho and produced by instagram legend Ra Pomare, learn a Māori phrase every day this week with these helpful videos, depicting real life conversations between ordinary hard-working kiwis.

Ra Pomare dives deep into his roles in today’s lesson, as he does in all his videos. Enjoy the nuances of each character but remember, don’t be that guy at the club.

Day two of ‘Te Reo Ākina with Ra Pomare: kei a koe, meaning ‘you’re very good at that!’
