Papa ʻŌlelo Hawaiʻi: Hawaiian Language Classes Level 3
Kumu Kaliko Beamer-Trapp
The Level 3 class is for those who can already speak and understand a little Hawaiian language. Class is taught over 50% in the Hawaiian language to increase comprehension and to “immerse” the students in the language. Each 8 week series covers a different topic in reading selected from traditional Hawaiian literature of the 1800s and bases the vocabulary and lessons around the readings. This class is ideal for teachers, cultural practitioners, and those with the goal of using Hawaiian language on a daily basis.
Papa ʻŌlelo Hawaiʻi Level 3 will be offered for 8 weeks every Tuesday night beginning December 3, 2019 – February 4, 2020, from 6:30pm – 8pm. No class on Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve.
Classes will be held at Volcano Art Center’s Niaulani Campus. Fee for the class is $95 and $85 for VAC members. No textbook is required; reading materials will be provided by the instructor.
