Māori Language


Māori o Te Reo Māori is an official language of New Zealand.

Unfortunately not all New Zealanders can speak the Māori language fluently and even among the Māori there is a varying degree of fluency. However there are many words that have become a part of everyday life in New Zealand and are known by all.

The modern Māori alphabet has 20 letters: A Ā E Ē H I Ī K M N O Ō P R T U Ū W NG and WH.(NG and WH are considered as one letter)
