Kia kaha te reo Māori
‘Kia kaha’ is well understood in New Zealand English with its meaning of ‘be strong’. We often talk about languages as if they are people – talking about language health, strength and revitalisation. So when we say ‘Kia kaha te reo Māori’ we’re saying – ‘Let’s make the Māori language strong’.
Thank you to all who are including Te reo in every day communication this week and every week.
Here are some examples of online learning this week. Keep it up
