Māori Language Learning
Textbooks & Resources
The Te Whanake Māori language series has evolved out of the need for Māori language resources for adults that reflect modern methods of teaching second languages. The teaching methodology reflected in the textbooks and resources is based on the way learners in a natural bilingual situation learn their second language.
