Students progress quickly from Emergent Communication from Level 1 in Te Reo Māori in the New Zealand Curriculum to Survival Skills in Levels 2, 3 and 4.  Students learn to communicate about:  relationships between people and family; ownership; likes and dislikes, giving reasons where appropriate and time, weather and seasons.  They cover topics to do with: routines; daily life; getting around town; school; leisure, shopping for food, clothes and presents; eating at home; housing; and talking about plans, obligations and responsibilities. While the course concentrates on communication in a second language, students also learn about socio-cultural elements associated with the target language.   A wide variety of text is used: music DVDs, letters, dialogues, advertising brochures, maps, posters, timetables, songs and books designed for second language learners.
