Māori Language Learning describes students being taught at different levels of Māori instruction. Each level is defined by the proportion of time the student is taught using Te Reo Māori.
Māori Language Immersion Levels:
- Level 1: 81-100%: Curriculum is taught in Māori for between 20 and up to 25 hours a week
- Level 2: 51-80%: Curriculum is taught in Māori for between 12.5 and up to 20 hours a week
- Level 3: 31-50%: Curriculum is taught in Māori for between 7.5 and up to 12.5 hours a week
- Level 4(a): 12-30%: Curriculum is taught in Māori for between 3 and up to 7.5 hours a week
- Level 4(b): At least 3 hours: Students are learning Te Reo Māori as a separate subject for at least 3 hours a week
- Level 5: Less than 3 hours: Students are learning Te Reo Māori as a separate subject for less than 3 hours a week
- Level 6: Taha Māori: Students learn Māori songs, greetings, and simple words
