Kōrero Āwhina

Sometimes you need a little help to stay in Te Reo Māori when you speak to others who are a bit more fluent than you. Don't be afraid to say you are still learning, but also don't be too quick to jump back into english when you are finding it a bit harder to understand what is being said. Below are some Kōrero Āwhina, helpful phrases to help you stay in Te Reo Māori while having a conversation.  We will also look at pātai that you can use to enquire about things during a conversation, which might also help to make your conversation more interesting.
