Reo Ora – Ko te Weu Level Three: A Māori Language Course for Intermediate Learners
- About the Book
This language course follows on from the Level 1 and 2 course for beginners that taught thirty sentence patterns and commonly used words, giving learners basic conversational Māori. This intermediate level course introduces another twenty sentence patterns that are primary sentence structures of te reo Māori. The book steps through modules that teach the grammar and sentence patterns and show these used in examples. Learning is reinforced through repetition of sentence patterns and written exercises, and in each module learners also access an online episode of a short movie where characters use the sentence structures in the story.
