EP Te Ao Māori for Everyone

Develop your understanding of Te Reo Māori and general tikanga to assist with the normalisation of our national taonga within your home and local community.

This article outlines information about the EP Te Ao Māori for Everyone course. We’ll cover frequently asked questions and information on how to get started.

How does it work?

This course is made up of 10 overarching Kete Kōrero (Learning Modules) filled with fun, interactive lessons and activities, exploring a range of kaupapa beneficial to all Kiwi learners.

Course participants will have access to an EP account, with which they can log into and complete course work from any device. Learn at your own pace, at any time!

Automated EP tasks offer immediate feedback and an abundance of opportunities to practice reading, writing and speaking Te Reo Māori.

Course completion

In order to complete the Te Ao Māori for Everyone course and access your certificate, you’ll need to:

  • Complete all Smart Lessons in each folder to 100% (you'll see a green tick).

Example of 100% completion in folders

  • Complete the Vocabulary Lists in each folder.
    • You just need to earn one star in one Learning Mode - you don’t need to complete every mode!
    • You may notice your progress percentage decrease on Vocabulary Lists as time goes on. This happens due to new points/stars becoming available but don't worry, your progress and stars will remain!

You can revisit lessons and vocabulary lists at any time, until the end of your subscription period.
