Introduction to Te Reo Māori and Tikanga

Gain an understanding of basic Te Reo and Māori culture for the workplace and other settings.

This is our most popular Te Reo course. Over 10 weeks (which can be arranged to fit around your team’s work schedule) you’ll gain an understanding of basic Te Reo and Māori culture and learn how to use your new skills in the workplace and other settings. Your team will start with basic pronunciation and words, build a structured mihimihi or pepeha, and gain an introductory understanding of cultural and traditional Māori values. Course content can be altered to fit the language used in your workplace or group setting and can be delivered at your workplace or at our campus.

On completion of this workshop, participants will be eligible to receive one of our digital badges which can be displayed on LinkedIn profiles or in email signatures. Find out more about these badges here: Displaying professional expertise with Ara’s digital badges - Ara
