New Zealand (Māori: Aotearoa) is an island country in the southwestern Pacific Ocean (our nearest neighbours are Australia and the Pacific Island Nations). It consists of two main landmasses—the North Island (Te Ika-a-Māui) and the South Island (Te Waipounamu) and has an overall population of around 5million. There are three official languages, English, Te Reo Māori and NZ Sign Language.
