Part 1 – GRAMMAR:
The grammar segment begins with the presenters explaining a sentence construction that utilises the vocabulary that will be taught in segment two.
They interact to demonstrate the sentence construction followed by graphical inserts in a role play situation. Here the audience meetWiremu ( who we met in series 2) and his family. This skit will help reinforce the learning points for the lesson.
At the end of the grammar segment is an interview with a kaumatua explaining the meaning of a colloquial expression peculiar to a certain tribe.
Part 2 – VOCABULARY:
Each week’s vocabulary relates to a particular theme. The presenters are the first to teach the words in the studio.
Based on best practise learning techniques, each word is pronounced first, followed by it’s written form. After each set of 5 words is introduced, they are presented again, but this time with a picture so the audience learns vocabulary in context.
The vocabulary section finishes with an insert from Evelyn Tobin – A Commissioner with the Māori Language Commission, who teaches a newly coined word related to the theme for the week.
Part 3 – ACTIVITIES:
The activities segment is where the audience gets to put what they’ve learnt into practise.
Exercises and games incorporate learning from the first two segments of the show, and range from multi-choice, to freeze frame activites using inserts from earlier in the show.
Across the whole series, a large variety of these activities are used to keep the learning fresh, and the audience engaged.
At the end of this segment, Professor John Moorfield himself provides language learning tips and homework to help the student get the most from the course.
