This is a really handy book for all the things you may want to say in Maori! It contains grammar, history of Te Reo, dialects, and pronunciations at the start, and then goes into full sentences though out the book breaking each down into areas of use, such as the office, travel and directions, food and eating, socializing and fun and the marae. Its really easy to follow and is really good for a quick brush up, or simply for starting to get the hang of the language! Have a go you wont regret it!
