This thirteen-part serial has been designed for beginner and intermediate learners to develop listening comprehension skills. The serial has an urban setting and uses everyday language. Episodes are based on themes from the textbook Te Kākano. The drama serial and related activities have been designed to complement the textbook, study guide, CDs and podcasts of Te Whanake 1 Te Kākano. Ideally, learners who have already some knowledge of the language will gain the most from watching each episode of the serial. If you have already studied the first few chapters, or even all of the book, Te Whanake 1 Te Kākano, you will benefit from working in sequence through the activities designed around each episode of the Te Kākano serial, and from watching the grammar and vocabulary teaching points discussed by the presenters. There are also interesting discussions about aspects of Māori culture.
You will meet the Whānga family. Rāwiri lives with his parents, Hone and Kēri, and his grandmother, Aroha. Mārama comes to stay.
Kua mahia ngā whakaaturanga o tēnei hōtaka mā ngā ākonga kātahi anō ka tīmata ki te ako i te reo hei whakapakari i ngā pūkenga whakarongo. Kei te tāone te horopaki o ngā wāhanga o te pūrākau, ā, he reo ōpaki te āhua o te reo. E hāngai ana ngā kōrero me ngā whakamārama ki te pukapuka matua, ki te pukapuka tātaki, ki ngā kōpae me ngā rokiroki o Te Whanake 1 Te Kākano. Ka whai hua te mātakitaki i ngā wāhanga o te pūrākau mehemea kua mōhio kē te akonga ki ētahi āhuatanga o te reo Māori. He kōrero anō kei ia whakaaturanga mō ētahi āhuatanga o te reo me ētahi tikanga Māori.
