Ngā tohu huarere 2 (Weather forecasts 2)
In this reomation there are two sample weather forecasts, at different levels of difficulty.
You will encounter Māori place names – and terms for describing the weather in those places.
You will also notice the word ‘hoki’ which, in this context, means ‘also’.
Notice too the word ‘tohu’, which means a sign/symbol.
In the second weather forecast you will learn how to describe coverage from one geographic area to another, for example, ‘...mai i Taupō ki ....’ (from Taupō to ....).
You will also learn some points of the compass; for example, ‘tonga’ (south), ‘rāwhiti’ (east) and ‘hauāuru’ (west).
In addition, there are useful time phrases, for example, ‘i te ata’ (in the morning); ‘i te ahiahi’ (in the afternoon).
