Te Wiki o te Reo Maori

Te Wiki o te Reo Maori

17 September 2020

In celebration of Te Wiki o te Reo Māori we would like to share Nik Vishwanath's story. He is on the road to full te reo immersion and is currently studying Te Pūtaketanga o te Reo for a New Zealand Certificate in Te Reo.

Nik wanted to gain a deeper understanding of Māori culture and learn more about New Zealand's history. He also adds that he wanted to challenge himself to learn a new language and encourages others to do the same. "Through the people I've met on the course, it's evident that te reo is alive and thriving, and it's something I want to be part of as a New Zealander.

"There are really no barriers to learning, a lot of the courses are accessible and free, run by passionate teachers that create a learning environment no matter where you are from or who you are."

Here's a photo of Nik from this week at the Downer Transport Services Central Region Leadership Conference.

Awesome work Nik!
