If you’re not one of the 8,000 people worldwide who speaks fluent Hawaiian, not to worry. Learning a new language can seem intimidating at first, especially when one of the eight consonants resembles a reversed apostrophe. But learning a few words and phrases is always a good idea when traveling somewhere new. And we’re here to help. Whether you are looking forward to surfing the state’s well-known waves or taking in the area’s Polynesian culture at a luau, this crash course in the language of the Aloha State will prepare you for your next Hawaiian adventure. You can tell us mahalo later.
