Kura Reo Pakihi created a comfortable and safe learning environment for me, as a beginner learner of te reo māori. The lessons were practical to the workplace and interesting.
Tū whitia te hopo. Ka rangona e te katoa tērā āhuatanga o te āmaimai ki te whakapakari i tona ake reo. He ngāwari te karo i ēnei momo wānanga, kia kore e rangona taua ahua o te whakama. Engari, ko ngā painga ka puta he mea whakatipu i te tangata. I riro ēnei hua ki Kura Reo Pakihi!
Feel the fear and do it anyway. Everyone feels a level of discomfort when developing their own reo. It’s easier to shy away from these types of learning environments and avoid the discomfort, but the benefits are worth the growing pains. At Kura Reo Pakihi we reaped the benefits!
