The progressions show the development of expertise in listening, speaking, reading and writing in New Zealand English and the examples used include some words from Te Reo that are commonly used in New Zealand. This acknowledges Māori iwi as tangata whenua and reflects the fact that Te Reo is one of our official languages.

Most New Zealanders regularly use, see or hear Te Reo and Māori concepts in their everyday lives. People who are fluent in Te Reo as well as English move easily between both languages and may respond to a question in English by using both languages.

Tutors can acknowledge and reflect this in their own teaching, while at the same time using the progressions as a guide for literacy development.
