  1. Kia ora Zeba,

    Well done! I really like it that you embraced this challenge and translated five different phrases into Te Reo Maori. I am currently trying to learn Maori but I am finding it quite tricky. My son, Aronui, is half Maori and he tries to help me but he gets frustrated because my pronunciation isn't great (while his is amazing). I am going to keep on trying, though. I really want to deliver a speech at his 21st birthday in Te Reo. He is only 5 1/2 years old so I figure that I still have a little bit of time to practice!

    Speaking of Te Reo, are you a fluent speaker of the language or of any other languages? I speak a little bit of French but that's it. I sometimes wish that I could speak multiple languages but for now I'll have to settle for English and a wee bit of French and Te Reo!

    If you could learn any language in the world, which one would you choose?

    Au revoir ('Good bye' in French),
