Te Ataarangi classes at ALS are finishing for the year. They happen at night when most of us part-timers have gone home. It has been lovely to hear the reo being spoken and the waiata being sung when they are here. We hope to see classes back again next year.
For over 30 years, Te Ataarangi has been at the forefront of Māori Language Revitalisation.
Te Ataarangi is well-known for the use of coloured Cuisenaire rods as a learning tool. It’s an effective language-learning technique that encourages you to speak. It has supported more than 50,000 people to speak Māori in homes and communities.
