Kīwaha are colloquial sayings or slang and they are great phrases to drop into your everyday conversation even if you are speaking English. We also have examples of more formal proverbs or whakataukī which illustrate how beautiful and poetic the Māori language is. You won’t learn how to speak te reo Māori by listening to this podcast series but you learn some great phrase you can use in everyday situations at work or at home. Karawhuia – Give it a go!
