Help With Learning Maori

Postby JLengquist » 2007-11-18, 4:10

I recently took a trip to New Zealand and ended up buying a book about the Māori language just to learn a little about the culture (I'm weird that way :P) After reading through I was utterly confused, but I felt like learning more. I have read through several topics and have learned a lot, but I was wanting to know if there was anything online, preferably free, that I could use to get a more advanced knowledge of the language. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks everyone :D

Kia Ora,

I'm not too sure what you meant by 'advanced'.

However we do have thread with some links to some websites. Click here.

He ingoa ōpaki a Riki; he ingoa ōkawa a Ariki.

Riki is an informal name; Ariki is a formal name.

Thanks for responding

What I mean by advanced is that I have already done the quizzes from that one site and I have gone through your thread. Now I'm wanting to learn more Māori so I can get into more complex sentences. Right now I can handle basic speech, but I would like to learn more.

As far as I know there are no online resources for learning complex sentences (which are just simple sentences combined). Feel free to ask me any questions however.
