Te Reo - ''What is that"

Room 2 and Mr Thurlow were lucky enough to have Matua Nathan from room 7 to help us with our Te Reo. He especially helped us with our vowels sounds. He taught us a trick how to pronounce the "o" in Te Reo, correctly. He said to think of apple and take a bite then look at the apple. You should see the core. The 'o" makes a ore sound like core.

Later on we practice the statement, "He aha Tenei?", which means "what is that?". The reply is " He " thing/ object" Tenei. There are macrons over the first "e" in Tenei, which extends the vowel sound.

Here is a movie showing our practicing and working on our pronunciation.
