Academic Kōrero for Poupou Huia Te Reo

The choice you made to enrol in the Poupou Huia Te Reo course shows you have a commitment to ‘te reo Māori’. Ka mau te wehi! This is one of the criteria for entry into the programme; the other is a commitment to the completion of the course. Before you take the next step, let us explain how it all works and what you need to do in order for you to develop your reo Māori and complete this course.

You will need access to the internet because everything is delivered online. We recommend that you spend a minimum of 12 hours a week on the listening activities, exercises and interaction with others in the course. You do not have to sit at the computer to do this; you can listen to the audio while commuting to work, spend your lunch break doing activities, or follow the programme when the tamariki have gone to bed. The best thing about this course is that you can learn in your own time, at your own pace and with others.

Are you new to the language? Do not be concerned; the more you put into it the more you will get out of it, and we also have tutor support for the duration of your study with us here at Te Wānanga o Raukawa.

Huia Te Reo is 20 weeks long and is suited to all language levels, so there is something in it for everyone.

Poupou Huia Te Reo has three formal assessments to complete to achieve this certificate. The assessments will test your audial, oral and written skills. There are also online activities attached to each week to help reinforce what you have learnt and help you to achieve the outcomes of this course.

Before you submit your application, please carefully consider all your commitments and capacity to engage (time, device and internet access). If you are still confident and committed to this reo journey, we look forward to receiving your enrolment.

If you are a New Zealand citizen the course is free. Non-New Zealand residents please call or e-mail us for all fee information.

In summary: Poupou Huia Te Reo is a fully online 20 week reo programme suitable to all language levels; it is fun, has tutor support and is free for New Zealand citizens.

Nā reira, before you submit your enrolment, please carefully consider all your commitments and capacity to engage (time, device and internet access). If you are still confident you have the time and desire to take up the Poupou Huia Te Reo challenge, complete your application and we will get your enrolment sorted as soon as possible.
