What is Intergenerational Transfer?


Intergenerational transfer is when a language is passed down from one generation to another i.e. parents to children, as the main form of communication.   

For a language to survive, intergenerational transfer must occur!!!

KMK wants to support Kāi Tahu families to become Māori speaking families who pass the language on to their children and grandchildren.  It's about raising a Generation Reo, a generation of Māori language speakers, who will in turn be supported to create another generation of Māori language speakers and ensure the survival of our language going into the future.

Our language is at serious risk.  What are you doing about it?
