The best way to speak a new language with confidence is to get used to it. 'Olelo Hou encourages the reader to obtain conversation-level skills in Hawaiian through sense and mimicry, trial and error. There are lessons on grammar and vocabulary within that are launching points to apo 'ana – catch new words through listening – as the people of Hawaiian antiquity did. Reprinted for the first time in years, 'Olelo Hou – Beginning Conversational Hawaiian is the text Kumu John Keola Lake authored and taught to four decades' worth of high school, college and continuing education students. It is an ideal resource for the individual or group interested in building habits that lead to future fluency in the language of the islands.
