Hi Steven,

Most tertiary institutions have beginners courses in Te Reo Maori so you can start from scratch there. Of course any prior exposure you might have will be helpful - remember that learning a language is so much more than just being able to speak and read it, it's about understanding the culture and ways of life. Getting involved with Kapa Haka or visiting your local museum to learn a little bit about Maori history and tikanga can be a great introduction!

Good luck!
