ʻŌlelo Online is a website where you can learn Hawaiian language at your own pace. Video lessons are given in plain English language in a "pen and blackboard" format, with accompanying documentation. There are also audio samples for you to listen to to test your comprehension and practice your pronunciation.

Described in the videos are the Hawaiian grammatical structures and their relationships to English grammar. You will also learn about Hawaiian culture and how the language carries cultural understandings which can help inform learners who may not be familiar with the Hawaiian culture or the "local" culture in the Islands.

E lawe i ke a‘o a mālama a e ‘oi mau ka na‘auao. "He who takes his teachings and applies them, increases his knowledge." (Take what you have learned and apply it and your wisdom will increase. It is a reminder to us that when we learn and gain ‘ike, we have a kuleana, a responsibility to apply, to use, to share with others!)

If you would like to hear and see a feature video with dialog recorded in the Hawaiian language, watch Until The Sun Sets.
