Not your average Māori language students

Te Kāea has come across a couple of Māori language students who are learning to be total immersion Māori teachers.

One is from South Africa and the other has Kahungunu links, but raised in her English and Irish heritage.

Our reporter, Numia Pōnika-Rangi, caught up with the pair to find out what they think of Māori Language Week and why they are learning the Māori language.
