Smart phone helps language acquisition

Smart phone helps language acquisition
- Using a smart phone can now be another path to learning te reo Maori, thanks to a new phone that came on the New Zealand market today.
Huawei worked with language experts from AUT University on a $2 million project to create a Maori operating system for its P10 phone, including a 30,000 word vocabulary for predictive texting.
Broadcaster and language advocate Scotty Morrison says that means you no longer need to fight your phone to send a text in Maori.
