English abstract
For a large number of reasons, most of the teachers with whom we work do not have the language of instruction, te reo Māori, as their first language. Teaching in a language, which is an additional language, is not an unusual situation for many teachers around the world. Using data from our ongoing, longitudinal research, we explore the sort of language knowledge that could be included within mathematical pedagogical content knowledge. This has implications for teacher education programs designed for teachers who do not teach in their first languages.
