Te reo

Learn Te Reo - quickly! Without a basic knowledge of maori customs and langauge, you will face great danger from your fellow island inhabitants - you have until Friday this week - be quick or you may be murdered, eaten or taken prisoner and used as a slave. If you're properly educated and lucky, you will know what to say, how to act and be taken in as an honoured guest.
Also, it would be wise to find out all you can about taniwha....

As well as indigenous threats, there is a Spanish galleon looming on the horizon. There is no historical record of such a visitation, but perhaps we now understand why - remember the mysterious cloud that got us into this mess?? It must have struck again! Be sure you know how to converse in simple Spanish or you may face a nasty keel haul!

I'm not fast or excited enough to learn that quickly Mr Woody but I'll give it a go!!

catgirl said...

I can pretty much figure out how to speak simple stuff, and I'm quite good at pronunciation, so I guess I'll be able to learn what to say. Also, being able to weave and stuff is a good advantage I have. Our group may be lucky yet!

Meow! Ka Kite, adios, See u l8r!

maori is cool cos no one else in the world speaks it except kiwis.
its easy to learn and the pronunciation is just like in spanish.
maybe we could arrange a day at uni to visit a language lab and a couple of science labs. it isn't that easy - but we could try.
i know we can go to the tv studio cos i went there last yr with rm 6.
Coolchik - i am very impressed with your pseudo spanish - its just like mine - you would be understood eventually. thanks your parents for getting you a diccionarionionio-o-o. it's an extra expence but i hope to make good use of it.

Mr Woody said...

Coolchik - post to your blog if you want a comment back. it is new to all of us and you are fitting right in as a big old yr 7. no one would have guessed.

Mr Woody said...

Koolsmoke - i hope that name isn't meant to glorify a nasty, deadly habit some people have.
did you know cigarettes have ammonia, arsenic and hundreds of other poisons in them?
i can't believe they're legal.
take care
