ʻʻI must say

that I am thoroughly enjoying this course. I have been trying to learn to speak Hawaiian for what seems forever. In fact, I just about gave up when I received an email inviting me to visit ʻAha Pūnana Leo's website for the Hawaiian language and to look at the course being offered. I have taken courses in the past that didn't pan out. I had to drop the courses because of the distance I had to drive every week to attend classes; or they were for one day only, or after two or three classes they would be canceled. Very frustrating! It's wonderful that I can now learn at my own pace and in the comfort of my home.” -Niuolahiki Self-directed Student

ʻʻThis course is

a relatively easy way to become more paʻa with the Hawaiian language and to better appreciate the Hawaiian culture.” -Niuolahiki Teacher-directed Student

ʻʻNiuolahiki is

an exceptional program! It's so exciting to be able to learn ʻōlelo Hawaiʻi with such great resources and teachers. I have learned so much and am so grateful for a program like this!” -Niuolahiki Teacher-directed Student

ʻʻMahalo nui loa

for all your dedication to ʻōlelo Hawaiʻi and to the preservation of the unique and beautiful Hawaiian culture. E ola ka ʻōlelo Hawaiʻi! The Hawaiian language shall live!” -Niuolahiki Teacher-directed Student

ʻʻIt has been a

wonderful experience for me to learn the Hawaiian language online these past few years, and has become one of the most important events in my life. Learning the language as an adult is sometimes a challenge, but the rewards have been tremendous. Nothing gives me greater joy than to know I am a part of the revitalization and perpetuation of the Hawaiian language and that I am doing my part in the endeavor to revive the language from near extinction.” -Pohonui K., Olympia, WA., Niuolahiki Teacher-directed Student

ʻʻIt is my greatest

hope that the Hawaiian language of our ancestors once more flourishes on the Hawaiian Islands and continues to reach out, embrace, and join hands with those abroad. The online classes at Niuolahiki are an integral part of connecting those of Hawaiian ancestry and others who are connected to Hawaiʻi through their aloha, to the heartbeat of the Hawaiian people - their beloved language. E ola ka ʻōlelo Hawaiʻi! The Hawaiian language shall live!” -Niuolahiki Teacher-directed Student

ʻʻThis was my first

course and I loved it - I got over my fear of technology and learned the value of distance learning through a truly sophisticated and thoughtful program. Because I have a busy schedule, I appreciated the flexibility, the immediate and feedback on homework, and the way that my teacher was able to give personal comments on assignments and questions. I would not hesitate to continue as a student and thank ʻAha Pūnana Leo for this service to all of us who love Hawaiʻi and live far away.” -Niuolahiki Teacher-directed Student

ʻʻThe program has

enhanced my learning so much!” -Niuolahiki Teacher-directed Student
