Hawaiian at HPU

Long live the Hawaiian language

Why study Hawaiian at HPU?

Hawaiian is the language of this land and it is the key to learning about the culture and people of Hawai`i.

In language there is life and Hawaiian language is preserved here in these islands by those who learn and make the committment to speak it each and every day.  To learn Hawaiian is to be a part of Hawai`i's rich cultural past and to contribute to its future.

Take a class and start learning more about Hawai`i through its beautiful language. The sequence in the language at HPU begins with HAWAIIAN 1100 and continues with HAWN 1200, 2100, 2200. Each college semester is roughly equivalent to one year of high school Hawaiian.

For more information about Hawaiian language classes, please contact Tracie Lopes at tlopes@hpu.edu
