Māori Television programme that uses a soap opera - Ākina - to teach the language.

It has had other segments such as Marae, Waiata, Tikanga, over the years. Some have got very repetitive.

The 2005-2006 series (which for the first time has had five different episodes of Ākina per week) ended on 10 June 2006 with the lead-up to the wedding ceremony for Hone and Tini (fully shown on 8 and 9 June) and the weekly wrap-up "tutorial" session on 10 June where the "Vocabulary Review" segments for the five weekdays were run as usual and a lot of the week's action could be relived (though rather out of order within each day's review). Did those guys get their suits on in time to reach the church on time? - Maybe!
