Learn Māori Online
Te Whanake Animations
Welcome to Te Whanake Animations. This series of online modules complements the four textbooks of the Te Whanake series for learning Te Reo Māori. For each module, you will find it an advantage if you have studied the relevant chapter in the particular textbook your are using.

Each module begins with an animated movie, which you should watch and listen to carefully several times. You'll meet some new friends in these movies, Te Hererīpene, Mīria, Eruera, Tarati, Wiremu, Kiwa and little Neihana.
You are able to add the Māori text and the English translation to the movies so that you can understand and learn the new language you are hearing. Each movie will introduce the new language of the module.
After watching and listening to the movie, you should try completing the activities and exercises, which are based on the language used in the movie and previous modules. You'll find these listed on the left of your screen.
