ʻʻThe classes are

stimulating. I especially appreciate the clarity of the speakers. I am hearing impaired but I have no problems understanding the spoken words. The speakers are very articulate in their enunciation of each word.” -Niuolahiki Self-directed Student

ʻʻThe distance learning

program was nice since I live In Tennessee and I can still take this Hawaiian course. Mahalo for the wonderful experience.” -Niuolahiki Teacher-directed Student

why I moved to Hawaiʻi after starting my formal Hawaiian language education with ʻAha Pūnana Leo’s distance learning program (while living in California), is to cultivate the bilingual cultural values that existed prior to the illegal overthrow of the Hawaiian monarchy.” -Malulani O., Kailua-Kona, HI., Past Niuolahiki Teacher-directed Student and Current OHA Trustee At-Large Candidate

an excellent way for beginning students to learn Hawaiian because the underlying structure of the language is clearly explained.
