Attracting attention

For many people, especially those living in New Zealand where monolingualism is the norm, hearing another language is a rare thing.  Being a family committed to te reo can therefore attract attention from others when you are out in the public using your reo.  Most of this attention will be out of curiosity and interest.  So stand proud and remember to smile as people pass by you wondering what beautiful language that is that you are speaking.

Be proud.
