From AudioFile:

Kaliko Beamer-Trapp and his female partner, Kiele Akana-Gooch, act as guides in this surprisingly well-done language program, which presents the history, culture, place names, and music of the Hawaiian Islands, as well as the language. Lessons cover the Hawaiian phonetic system, basic greetings, pronouns, verb usage, a variety of vocabulary areas, and Hawaiian syntax. Kaliko and Kiele read the sample dialogues, giving the listener the chance to hear male and female voices in action. The 8-disc program is also loaded with stories told in Hawaiian, which will help the listener gain an ear for the language. As obscure as the Hawaiian language may seem to some, INSTANT IMMERSION HAWAIIAN demonstrates language learning--and teaching--at its best. Mahalo! S.E.S.
