Ka Mau Te Wehi!

An Introduction to Te Reo Māori

Ka Mau te Wehi! is an expression meaning awesome! or fantastic! It is used in this context to celebrate all achievements, large or small, as you learn Te Reo Māori.

The course is based on levels 1 and 2 of Te Reo Māori in the New Zealand Curriculum and is designed to provide an introduction to Māori language and culture. This online resource contains video clips of the unit scenarios, students performing waiata and explanations of tikanga. The material also includes interactive games, transcripts of the scenes, and copies of the waiata lyrics.

The scenarios tell a story about a group of friends. The clips also discuss new language forms and provide relevant cultural information. Each scenario is supported by activities that give you opportunities to use the new language by speaking and responding to others, and some written exercises to complete online or in your own exercise book.
