Make an effort

Have you ever had anybody pronounce your name incorrectly? Ever corrected them and had them not really care about making an effort to say it right?

Making an effort to pronounce words that we're not used to is SO important. It can be the difference between someone feeling worthless or valued, the difference between a language lost or a language revitalised!

Check out the strategies some of us in Hub 5 have used to make te reo Māori more accessible to everybody!

    I really like how you taught all the kids to say the Maori names correctly. We need to make sure that everyone knows how to speak the Maori language correctly. Kara
    I think you were really good at acting in this movie and I like the song in the background. Latoya
    I like how the actor in the movie found a solution and didn't just give up. Katelyn
