Te Wiki o te reo Māori: Day one with Guyon Espiner

3:08 pm on 10 September 2018

RNZ presenter Guyon Espiner says learning te reo Māori required him to un-learn the way Māori place names and words were incorrectly pronounced and butchered by his peers growing up.

In the early 2000s he took night classes for te reo, and started formally learning the language at Te Wānanga o Aotearoa last year.

To celebrate Māori Language Week our reporter Te Aniwa Hurihanganui spoke to him about his reo journey.
