L1 Te Reo Māori
Teacher in Charge: Whaea B. Te Paa
Level 1 Te Reo Māori
The focus of this course is to support you to learn te reo Māori through immersion so that you can reach an increased level of fluency. This course is aimed at Levels 5 and 6 of the Curriculum. By the end of Level 6, students should be able to converse with te reo Māori speakers in familiar social situations and cope with some less familiar ones. They can use basic Māori language patterns spontaneously. They show a willingness to experiment with new language and to read independently. They can write short passages, personal letters, and simple formal letters in te reo Māori. Students are increasingly confident in using a range of strategies for learning te reo Māori and for communicating with others in predominantly Māori social contexts.
The focus of this course is fluency in te reo Māori, however, students who wish to pursue NCEA Level 1 te reo Māori may do so. Students and their whānau are encouraged to discuss this course with Whaea Bri Te Paa prior to selection.
