0603V The Kaʻi Determiners #3: Kekahi

Aloha ʻoukou! This is the third in the set of videos about the kaʻi (articles which precede content words such as nouns, verbs, and adjectives). This video is 14 minutes long and will teach you the kaʻi "kekahi" (meaning "a" or "another"). There are only two new vocabulary words in this video (ʻae and ʻaʻole meaning yes and no), and there is a fun "shopping" game at the end to help you remember the use of the word kekahi.

Level Check

If you have arrived here without first seeing the two preceeding videos, we invite you to go and see 0601V The Kaʻi Determiners #1: He and 0602V The Kaʻi Determiners #2: Ka, Ke before you begin this lesson. It will help to have that foundation set ahead of time.

Next Steps

After you are done watching the video, you will be able to move on to the next one: 0604V Memeʻa Content Words. You will learn about a new class of words which include the equivalents of common nouns, adjectives, and verbs in English. But do not fear: we will not be having any deep English language lessons here, and you don't even have to know what an adjective is in English to understand the coming lesson! Maikaʻi!

Streaming or Downloading Videos

All videos are in MP4 format except the WebM file and the OGG file (if available). The MP4's should play on all Macs, Windows PCs, iPads, iPhones, and most Android or similar devices. Most up-to-date web browsers on both desktops and mobile devices should be able to play the MP4 files. Just select the small, medium, or large link to match your network connection speed (bandwidth).

Note that you may have to wait up to 30 seconds on a medium speed connection for the video to load enough to play.

If you are using Firefox on Windows, you may find that the MP4 versions do not play. In this case, try playing the WebM file in your browser, or else download it and play it using VLC Player on your PC.

If you wish to download any of the files rather than showing them in your web browser, you should right-click on the links above and select "Save Linked File As..." or whatever similar choice your browser has. You can use QuickTime Player or VLC Player on Macs or Windows PCs to play the files on your desktops and there are many apps which can play videos on tablets such as iPad, including VLC Player for iOS and Android.
