Eleonora - Wellington

I believe learning te reo brings us back to the 'source' of the NZ spirit.

Languages are the blood of a country - they tell us the story and also give us a peculiar worldview - if we lose a language is like losing special glasses to look at the world in a different way. We forget where we are and where we come from. I am not born in NZ and treasure my languge of where I am from (Italian and French) because they tell my story, who I am, in the same way I believe learning te reo brings us back to the 'source' of the NZ spirit.
