E Kama'ilio Hawai'i Kakou [Let's Speak Hawaiian].
Kahananui, Dorothy M.; Anthony, Alberta P.
A comprehensive Hawaiian language course intended for use at the secondary and college levels, this text is designed to answer the need for new methods and materials in language instruction and represents extensive research on the Hawaiian language. Composed almost entirely of material which has been tested in actual classroom situations, it employs the aural-oral method, placing emphasis on the development of conversational skills through dialogues and drills. Stressing the need to render the student's first language inoperative, the authors have placed Hawaiian and English texts on separate pages. This, together with memorization and drill, is designed to help the student think and converse fluently in the target language, rather than in English. Included in the text are directed responses, questions and answers, short narratives, pattern practice material, conversations, and material for practice in tenses, sentence expansion, and comparative forms. Information on forthcoming tapes is available from the University of Hawaii Press. (Author/AMM)
