The concept of ako is reciprocal.   We learn different things from one another all the time. Teachers, students, parents, and our children can all learn from each other.

Ako Wakatipu aims to:
·         NKMPT logoCreate a base population of second language speakers who may be more interested in focusing on cultural aspects embedded in language.
·         Speak Maori in certain locations or domains, i.e. home, work, sports grounds.
·         Increase the Maori language proficiency levels (Maori language ability) of participants.
·         Our approach in delivering Ako is task based learning where the focus is on meaningful use of our Maori language.

We recommend that participants take part in Ako with the people you spend a lot of time i.e. whanau, work mates, sports teams.
To learn more about Ako call our office on 03 442 4052.
