16. Other comments:
I have been involved with the Hawaiian language for a very long time teaching and speaking the language. Dr. Warner's teaching of this Haw grammar course the way he has, gives me a keen insight into the intricacies of the language. He has organized this course so that I can more easily grasp the pilina'olelo. I'm sad that we lost two days of instruction because of holidays. We missed out on things that could have been taught by the instructor himself. Instead, we have to do it on our own. Dr. Warner supplied us with all we needed to know for the classes missed but for me I needed the structure within the classroom. I'm finding that missing these classes on Nov. 11th and 25th makes the final overwhelming because so much info was shared by No'eau to do on our own and we only had Nov. 18 and Dec 2 to cover so much information in class. I would have loved to practice and use the material in class and really learned it well enough to be comfortable using the information we received. It's a great class taught by an excellent Kumu!
One of the best courses I have ever taken.

Noeau is very knowledgeable in the Hawaiian language. I learned a great deal during this semester, and more importantly, it has helped me in my career as a teacher at a hawaiian language immersion school. I have seen immediate results in the classroom as I apply the things we learned in this course into my curriculum. I look forward to the intermediate and long term results as I continue to use what I've learned in this course. It's been quite some time since I actually studied the hawaiian language. I've been too busy with my classes that I teach. But it was good to consider my language, and I realized that I need to continue to work towards improving my language so that I can help the students that I teach to improve their language. This course was an excellent opportunity for me to do this. And to be able to learn from someone who obviously has studied and researched the language was a privilege that I am thankful for.
Mahalo

Kumu No`eau`s class was very helpful in strengthening my understanding of Hawaiian language and his instructional strategies are very applicable to teaching Hawaiian language within a content area to students of all ages. It is most impressive that his findings on grammar and structure of the Hawaiian language is based on extensive and comprehensive research from sources such as the old Hawaiian newspapers and other native Hawaiian speakers. And from this, Kumu No`eau has developed a system to help us as a tool to strengthen our language as Hawaiian immersion teachers, and consequently the Hawaiian language of the students we teach. The knowledge that Kumu No`eau has and the openness and the humility that he shares it with us, his students is priceless.
Mahalo nui e kumu No'eau, Ua hoihoi keia papa, he ho'onui 'ike maika'i no'u. E ho'opa'a ana wau i keia mau mea i hiki ai ia'u ke ka'ana'ike me na haumana 'o Hawai'i, he 'ike waiwai a he pono ka ho'okumu ana aku mai keia mua aku. Mahalo hou Aloha no,
