Summer learning journey: Day 5

Activity 1

Unlike the Māori, many of the European settlers didn’t speak Te Reo Māori. Instead, they spoke English. As you can imagine, it was very difficult for the two groups to communicate because they did not have a dictionary or a translator. These days we are able to use the Internet to translate words and phrases from one language to another.

how to say dictionary in Maori papakupu.

how to say instead in Maori Engari.

how to say asleep in Maori Moa.

    Great to see some helpful phrases there! Do you speak a language at home?
    My family lived in Papua New Guinea for 12 years so we sometimes speak a language called Tok Pisin.

    So I can give you full points, would you be able to translate these sentences for me please?

    1. Nau mai ki Aotearoa.
    2. ____ is my name.
    3. What is your name?
    4. He pai taku ki te takaro i te whutupaoro.
