He Korowai Tukutuku Reo / Why We Teach How We Teach

These kuia inspired the design of our accelerated te reo Māori course based on the principles of raranga, the art of weaving where we create organic communication patterns and codes in te reo. Te reo uses a series of time-eternal codes passed down by our tūpuna, ancestors. He Korowai Tukutuku Reo represents a platform of perfectly aligned and codified language.
