Te reo tech
Te reo Māori has set sail for an international audience this week with the launch of Māori for iOS and Android on multi-language learning app Drops. The Māori app release will include almost 2000 words to enable vocabulary comprehension that, according to linguists, provides a sufficient understanding of 80 to 90 percent of New Zealand's native language. Drops was crowned Google Play’s ‘Best App of 2018’ and is the first major multi-language app to add te reo Māori, and could be a useful tool for those closer to home (*cough Don Brash cough*). We talk to the Hungarian co-founder and chief executive officer, Daniel Farkas, about its choice to step into te reo Māori.
