Texting used to teach Te Reo


Tolaga Bay Area School is taking texting to another level: texting in the native language, Te Reo. Keeping the roots alive…

Clearly texting is a phenomenon in New Zealand as it is in the rest of the world. We just thought perhaps it would be a good idea to use Te Reo Maori or to try and find a text language in Te Reo Maori and see whether the students would take it up since they love it so much,
says Nori Parata, principal of Tolaga Bay Area School.
And the idea has struck a chord with the experts too.
We've talked for a long time about things that we need to do for our Rangatahi so the language will become sexy. I think the whole art of texting is somewhat of sexy way for our Rangatahi to communicate. Yes the purists may not be happy about it but you know it's getting them communicating and using our reo,
says Sharon Armstrong from Te Taurawhiri I Te Reo Maori.

Vanity Fair is stylish and well written, and they push the envelope in celebrity reporting, giving readers if not a balanced
representation, then at least an interesting angle to a well known personality.
Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan had a rough battle, when the
movies related to them were released at the same time.
