We go though some common mistakes in Te Reo such as whakahua (pronunciation) and plurals, the use of 'āhei' and 'taea', 'i' and 'ki', statives, mai and atu and some good tips for online resources to help your Reo learning.
This week's kīwaha is "Māna" (I could be wrong...)
Reo learners and geeks take note. We look at double vowel vs macronisation of compound words, the use of some common kupu like 'Arā', 'Otirā' and Īna/Inā, and discuss a few other common perplexities in the use of Te Reo.
This episode's kīwaha is "Inē" = surprise reaction - is that right!?
Want to pimp your mihi to the Ringawera? Listen up here e te whānau, we give you lots of examples of kupu, kīwaha and sentences to use when addressing the hard working kaimahi of food at any occasion. Check out the whakamārama for the last waiata - Kua Te Ngāngara here:

Negation - can't, won't, didn't etc - Paraone puts Erica to the test with a one-on-one schooling in negatives.
'Tūkapi Puriro' or 'Posessive Pronouns' - tāku, āku, tāu, āu etc - our hosts drill many examples of how ownerhsip structure works in Te Reo Māori.
With Paraone in Mahuru Māori mode, we have a very knowledgable special Reo speaking guest, Whakarongotai Hohepa, join us to talk about the ever confusing yet vitally important use of 'ā' and ʻō'.
Our first RRR kōrero covers the functions of negating with "kāore aku", applying possesives like "māu/mōu, nōku/ōku, nāku/āku" etc, along with "a vs ā" and "ā and ō" category differentiations. Along the way we unpack the kupu and give examples of how they can and should be used in Te Reo Māori.
