TREO111-19S1 (C) Semester One 2019

Te Reo: Te Kakano - Introductory Language 1

15 points
18 Feb 2019 - 23 Jun 2019


An entry level course for those who wish to develop writing and speaking skills in Maori. Students learn an array of sentence constructions and vocabulary that will enable them to talk and write in several contexts about a wide variety of relationships and events in the present and the past. Students are exposed to cultural elements such as mihi, whakatauki and kiwaha, including a variety specific to Ngai Tahu. The course blends academic study of the language with a range of teaching techniques including language games, waiata and group activities.


Students wishing to enter TREO111 must have a basic knowledge of te reo Maori including an understanding of correct pronunciation, basic greetings, days of the week, parts of the body etc (i.e. knowledge that can be gained through successfully completing TREO110). Students that are more competent in te reo Maori may be asked to complete an oral test to assess their level appropriate course for the student. In some instances this may mean that a student enters the TREO Programme at a higher level.
