The Te Whanake Maori language series has evolved out of the need for Maori language resources for adults that reflect modern methods of teaching second languages. The teaching methodology reflected in the textbooks and resources is based on the way learners in a natural bilingual situation learn their second language.
The series contains a comprehensive set of Maori language learning textbooks, study guides, recorded audio and video listening and speaking exercises, teachers' manuals, and a Maori dictionary for learners and teachers that develops Maori language ability from beginner through to advanced levels.
