Ok for those of you who didn't understand what I just wrote, here's what I said:
Today Hawaiian 201 started. It's REALLY HARD. Our teacher only wants us to speak Hawaiian. It's a good thing, but he's really not letting us off the hook even on our first day. There's a lot of smart kids in the class and I want to learn from them. I don't understand everything our teacher says because he speaks kind of softly and quickly. But, I have to move forward. Perhaps by the end of the semester I will be able to speak only in Hawaiian. That makes me happy.
