Community-based classes are informal classes run in various locations throughout the country. The focus is on speaking Māori in a supportive environment. Everyone learns together at the same pace.
You can learn to speak Māori with confidence in a fun and non-threatening manner. Te Ataarangi is best known for its use of Cuisenaire rods (rākau) in an immersion environment. It’s an effective method that works.
Community-based classes receive limited or no funding, therefore a fee may be charged. If you are interested in attending a community-based class, please check out our Rohe section.
