Is Hawaiian still spoken?
Herein, is Hawaiian an endangered language?
The language is still endangered but thegrowing number of native speakers is encouraging. As one of theimmersion movement founders describes it: “Our numbers arehope.” The 2010 census reported that 24,000 householdsidentified Hawaiian as their dominantlanguage.
Subsequently, question is, do Hawaiians still speak Hawaiian? Hawaiian, along with English, is an officiallanguage of the State of Hawaii. In 2001, native speakers ofHawaiian amounted to less than 0.1% of the statewidepopulation. Linguists were unsure if Hawaiian and otherendangered languages would survive.
Moreover, do people actually speak Hawaiian?

Is Hawaiian difficult to learn?
Even in Hawaii, the Hawaiian language israrely spoken among locals. From what little I understand, therules are not that difficult. Most (if not all) of thesyllables consist of two letters, so in that respect, it is fairlyeasy to pronounce the words, very much like Spanish.
