Te Pihinga is an intermediate-level Te Reo Māori course which follows on from the beginner course, Te Kākano. Like Te Kākano, Te Pihinga is flexible and fast-paced, using a mix of online resources, weekend wananga and evening classes, all of which can be adapted to suit your needs as the course progresses.
At Te Pihinga you’ll broaden your vocabulary and look at how language use can vary in different settings.
