So what’s the outcome for this topic for February 2013?
Push it until it happens.
I *want* this to happen. I want NZ to lead the way. Show the world that it is possible.
It’s up to me to put my money where my mouth is. I’ve committed to improve my own Te Reo Māori skills this year. Next up is extending my skills in te reo Māori, gaining a greater of understanding of tikanga and increasing my waiata repertoire.
And somewhere along the line, I will refresh my NZSL skills.
I need to keep planting the seed to everyone I know in the GLAM industry to incorporate bilingualism into our training curriculum.
So my goals are to –
- Keep the discussion going.
- Find out who to lobby, who to influence and who will make this a reality.
- Find others to be part of this.
- Start the groundswell.
- Keep momentum going.
Make it happen.
