Nau mai, haere mai to ‘He Timotimo’, Wellington City Libraries’ new te reo Māori taster sessions!
We know it can be scary to start learning a new language and that te reo Māori classes fill up quickly in Wellington so we are pleased to announce that our free, friendly classes will be starting on Thursday 9 May 2019.
These are introductory classes for beginners and will have a new topic each week as a taster, he timotimo, to get you started. The sessions will be fun and you will be supported as you learn the basics with our specially designed programme developed by Neavin Broughton and taught in association with Te Reihine Roberts-Thompson.
Thursdays 5.15pm – 6.15pm. You are welcome to come for a hot drink and biscuit from 5pm onwards.
Committee Room One, Wellington City Council, 101 Wakefield Street. Our friendly staff at the Reception Desk will be able to point you in the right direction.
These taster sessions are suitable for absolute beginners and we are now taking bookings for the first six week block of classes. Each class will feature a new topic. Bookings will be essential for each date as numbers are limited. As each week is booked separately you don’t need to worry if you have to miss a week.
The classes are informal and you will not need textbooks or other materials, you might just want to bring a notebook and pen to take some notes.
