Welcome to the Hawaiian Wikibook, a free textbook on the Hawaiian language!
Don't forget to have a look at the Wikipedia written in Hawaiian.
This series is designed to teach you everything you need to know about ʻŌlelo Hawaiʻi, the Hawaiian Language. In each chapter, you will learn a little bit to broaden your understanding of the language, and will be able to speak it fluently in no time at all. Assuming that you know nothing about the language, I recommend you start with the introduction, learning a little about the Hawaiian language, then proceeding to Lesson One, not necessarily jumping right in and teaching you an overwhelming amount of words, but just explaining the general things that you will need to know as a foundation for this beautiful language. Those things that will be taught in Lesson One will be carried on in later lessons, and will constantly remind you of the grammar until you know it by heart.

Beyond the Beginning
- This section is for those who have gone through the above lessons and understand everything they have studied. These next lessons are for those who want extra learning and/or practice with their Hawaiian language studies, contain general information about nouns, adjectives, verbs, adverbs, etc. and are designed to expand the learner's vocabulary with the language. Each lesson has three parts, so feel free to skip around to any particular section that looks interesting to you. You may go through it in order, backwards, every other one, every other five — I prefer in order — but these were designed to be read through in no particular order. Explore to your heart's delight, and happy learning!
