Ka pai rawe Finnian. Kia kaha ki te Kōrero Māori.

Tēnā koutou kātoa. Ngā mihi ki a koutou.

Even after 40 years of Te Wiki o te Reo Māori (1975 - 2015) celebrations, pronunciation of this taonga continues to challenge us.

Finnian Galbraith, a year 11 student at Kāpiti College shares his thoughts on this. The clip has gone viral and let's hope it generates a lot of kōrero. Ka pai rawe Finnian. Kia kaha ki te Kōrero Māori.

Keep locked in to Te Wiki o te Reo Māori with Ngā Kete Wānanga o Ōtautahi for daily posts and links to help you and your pronunciation.
