PM wants to learn Maori

John Key wants to learn Maori. He wants to be fluent in Te Reo, but says he has no time to learn it. Thats bollocks. If he wanted to learn it he'd make time for it. He could do a basic Te Reo course extramurally through Massey and it`d take just six hours a week for 13 weeks. He could relinquish the Tourism portfolio for that time and he'd easily get that done. Imagine having John Key at your Massey contact course.

But I noticed this from the Newstalk ZB report :
Mr Key was asked whether it was time for a New Zealand prime minister to be fluent in both of the country's official languages.
Given one of our two official languages is sign language, I wonder what use Newstalk ZB would see in Key being fluent in both languages, let alone one.

Hi this is cherry , I have spent a few months building a site to help me and ultimately everyone else learn foreign languages(built for any language). I am trying to find people who would like test out the site (and use it to learn at the same time) and give me feedback on it on how to improve it. Any person who helps out would have a large say in the sites future direction and structure. Would you be interested? The site is called Sanbit : .
Do you know anyone else who might be interested in using the site to help them learn foreign languages?
