In addition to our coursework, Kawaihuelani faculty also strive to develop and implement innovative, co-curricular learning activities that extend beyond the classroom setting to engage students in a wide range of domains of language use where they apply their knowledge of vocabulary, language structures, idiomatic expressions, and cultural norms in order to participate competently, appropriately, and in-depth in different linguistic and cultural contexts. We understand the importance of practical and authentic application of ‘ōlelo Hawai‘i, which is essential to the survival and perpetuation of Hawaiian as a living language.
