Speak Māori

Speak Maori
Speak Māori is a language learning system that is being developed by Scotty Morrison, Bradley Walker and Ben Carson that delivers accelerated learning of te reo Māori.  We are entering test phase of our Speak Māori software and will look to launch full access to this in early 2018.

In the meantime, Scotty Morrison in conjunction with Waatea has created a series of

Speak Māori podcasts – Pāhorangi that are for beginners and advanced learners.

Nau mai ki ngā Pāhorangi a te rōpū Speak Māori. These Podcasts have 3 parts:

  1. The first section focuses on grammar. Beginners podcast explanations are in English, Advanced podcast explanations are in te reo Māori only.
  2. The second section focuses on colloquialisms or kīwaha, proverbs or whakataukī, metaphor or huahuatau, and similes or kupu whakarite. These are analysed and explained, and are accompanied by examples of how to use them in everyday contexts. Once again, the explanations on the Beginners podcast are in English, Advanced podcast explanations are in te reo Māori only.
  3. In the final section, you will be exposed to examples of tohunga reo, or expert language models. Listen carefully to how these exponents of the language structure sentences, use words, and how they use language devices such as kīwaha. The more you listen, the more you will be able to imitate what you hear. Beginners podcasts are bi-lingual, Advanced podcasts are in te reo Māori only.
  4. Listen to the podcasts on this page or right click on any download text link below each player to download the .mp3 file.  This audio file will play on most computers and media players.  Check back often as we will be adding to these podcasts regularly.
