These exercises for Te Whanake 2 Te Pihinga have been designed to support the oral and listening skills that you will be developing in your classes. For each exercise, listen to, and follow carefully, any instructions that you are given prior to a particular exercise.

In learning new language you should make sure that you understand the grammar or usage point before attempting a particular exercise. This is the first step in adding new language items to your spoken and written Māori language repertoire. Each of these grammar or usage points is explained in the relevant chapter of your textbook. Then the second step is to practise the new language. These exercises will help you do that. The third important step is to put them into practice by talking or writing to other people. You should seek out opportunities to communicate in Māori with other learners and with native speakers.
