A Unique Language

Language carries with it information about who we are, how we express ourselves, our culture, and how we define the world around us. While taking a closer look into the languages spoken in the beautiful country of New Zealand, a place with so much to offer in every aspect, it’s significant to point out that its three official languages are English, Māori and New Zealand Sign Language.

A rare language, the Maori language (te reo Maori) is an important part of the culture and community of the Maori people as well as a significant element of the cultural identity and history of New Zealand. Worldwide it’s not highly recognized; nevertheless in 1987, the Maori language was recognized as an official New Zealand language. There are approximately 160,000 speakers of the Maori language (4.2% of the population) in New Zealand, although people generally tend to use English in their daily life. The names of many cities and places in New Zealand are derived from Maori, such as Rotorua, Taupo, Manukau, Tauranga, Waikato and Whangarei.
