Looking to advance your skills in te reo Māori?
If you have a desire to contribute positively to the development of te reo kia tika, kia rere, kia Māori, or have a personal and/or professional interest in te reo Māori, then this course is for you.

Te Pokaitahi Reo (Te Kaupae 4) is offered via day-time classes in some locations, while in others the course combines online learning and weekend Wananga, making it flexible for people who are working during the day.
