KEALALEO is an adult Hawaiian Immersion Program which takes each individual to "wa kamali'i" or the time of ones childhood when we first began learning language.  KEALALEO is uniquely different because it does not use the written word to teach but rather uses Hawaiian in its rawest form, the spoken tongue.  KEALALEO is a "new" method of learning 'Ōlelo Hawai'i, returning to the original style of indigenous learning.  KEALALEO has proven to be a fun, inter-active, non-intimidating setting for learning Hawaiian. "We welcome each individual who has the desire to know more about the language and thus the culture.", says Kumu Ka'eo.
