8 October, 2015 - Te Whanake app for learning Māori expanded to upper-intermediate level
The third section of the Te Whanake app, Te Māhuri, is now available for iPad and Android tablet mobile devices. The Te Kākano and Te Pihinga sections have been available for some time. Now Te Māhuri is available for purchase.
The Te Whanake app is a container app and within that is an in-app purchase for each level. Each level pulls material from the textbook, animations, podcasts, exercise sheets and the TV programmes of the Te Whanake series. The Te Whanake app encompasses most of the Te Whanake resources, both the print and the online resources, in a structured programme. This is a major step in improving the programme for learners and teachers from beginner through to the advanced level.
The app container is free, while each level requires an in app purchase. Each part can be purchased for NZ$19.99.
