About the class

Kia ora koutou katoa,

Our 3-Month Reo Challenge is BACK to help you improve your ability to speak te reo Māori ! If you are looking for consistancy, accountability and community on your te reo Māori journey this challenge is for you!!

What is the challenge?

The challenge is to speak te reo Māori every week for 12 weeks!

How will this be accomplished?

  • Kaiako Amelia will be posting 2-3 videos in te reo Māori every week for 12 weeks in our challenge Whatsapp group. Your job is to respond to the videos in te reo Maori.
