Maori Made Easy

$38.00 NZD

Fun, user-friendly and relevant to modern readers, Scotty Morrison’s Māori Made Easy is the one-stop resource for anyone wanting to learn the basics of the Māori language.


It’s a complete and accessible guide to learning te reo Māori, no matter your knowledge level.


While dictionaries list words and their definitions, and other language guides offer common phrases, Māori Made Easy connects the dots, allowing the reader to take control of their learning in an empowering way. By committing just 30 minutes a day for 30 weeks, learners will adopt the language easily and as best suits their busy lives.


Written by popular TV personality and te reo Māori advocate Scotty Morrison, author of The Raupo Phrasebook of Modern Māori, this book proves that learning te reo can be fun, effective — and easy!
