Kia ora ! I’m a long-term resident in London, but NZ-born and bred.
Having been inspired by a tourism guide called “Maori New Zealand” given
away for free with last weekend’s Sunday Telegraph, I really would like
to learn some Maori. Is there anyone in the London area who can help
and/or point me in the right direction ?

Call NZ House – they should know of Maori groups around.
I will check to see if I have a listing for a NZ ex-pat’s group that
you could hook up with and ask.

there, they are very helpful. Look around a central London tube station
for expat newspapers (NZ News UK for eg) or contact the High Commission
(you could pop into Kiwi Fruits at the same time, they’re just around

I’m pakeha but not “Aotearoa-bred”…..
I spent 6 weeks in New Zealand in January and February 2004 and I was
impressed by Maori hospitality and Maori culture and mythology. I
decided to learn Maori by myself and I bought several useful books for
teaching oneself. If you like I may send to you the bibliography

You could try the www.correspondence.school.nz. I am not sure what theire
policy is for learning overseas, but might be worth checking out? My friend
is currently learning a language at 5th form/year 11 level and you get
learning booklets, tapes and you send your writing/tapes away for marking by
your assigned tutor. And it is reasonably cheap.
