MĀORI MADE EASY
This is one of the titles I will be chatting to Mark Sainsbury about this Sunday morning on our weekly chat on Radio Live.
MĀORI MADE EASY - For everyday learners of the Māori language
by Scotty Morrison - Raupo - $38.00
The complete and accessible guide to learning the Māori language, no matter your knowledge level.
While dictionaries list words and their definitions, and other language guides offer common phrases, Māori Made Easy connects the dots, allowing the reader to take control of their learning in an empowering way. By committing just 30 minutes a day for 30 weeks, learners will adopt the language easily and as best suits their busy lives.
Written by popular TV personality and te reo Māori advocate Scotty Morrison, author of The Raupō Phrasebook of Modern Māori, this book proves that learning the language can be fun, effective – and easy!
