Description of this Book

Te Wahapu is the second book in this comprehensive, enjoyable and easily understandable self-tuition course for Maori language. Te Rere o te Reo offers an up-to-date bilingual approach to mastering te reo Maori, designed for learners of all backgrounds in today's world. As notable Maori language advocate Piripi Walker says in his foreword: 'Te Wahapu, like Te Hikuwai before it, provides all the steps you need for mastery of the first stages of speaking and writing idiomatic Maori. It has been located within real-life activities of contemporary people, scenarios which imagine you using Maori, in Maori-speaking networks, in modern settings. The books offer a reference text, workbook and audio resource all in one. They are structured in units, each opening with a dialogue and followed by explanations of words, expressions and language patterns. Exercises and activities - with space for your answers - reinforce key points of learning at every step. In the classroom - Te Rere o te Reo (the flow of language) is a foundation course in three levels: Te Hikuwai (the stream); Te Wahapu (the river mouth); Te Moana Waiwai (the open sea). Teachers will find that the course's design for self-tuition enhances its classroom use with secondary students, as well as adult learners, launching into Maori language. Te Wahapu along with Te Hikuwai form at least two-thirds of a three-year basic course. The course overall will offer teachers and students all the resources they need for students to achieve NCEA Level 1 in the language.
