Learn Hawaiian Place Names in 5 minutes-Big Island, Hawaii

In Hawaii English is spoken, but one encounters quite a few words in Hawaiian, especially place names. So the only problem I had was how to say the names of the places. They all looked and sounded practically the same to me. For each island, I found an authentic local person to teach me how to say the names of the major attractions. This is only a subset of the words, if you don’t find the names you are looking for, after watching this video, I am sure you can derive it. This is because the language has only 13 letters with 5 vowels and 8 consonants.

This video is for the Big island. For Kauai Island, you may prefer this video:
