Yes, that is indeed true, but there IS someone working on a Latin course and that's not spoken anymore either. (Unless you learn it through resources.) Same with the Irish course. There are some people who speak Gaeilge still in Ireland, but there are more people learning it than native speakers.

People still might want to learn Hawaiian though, as goes for Latin and Irish!

Actually, it's mostly limited to one of the Islands of Hawai'i, Ni'hau. At least the closest "original" Hawaiian.

There are several Hawaiian Language Charter schools throughout the islands. http://www.ahapunanaleo.org/ is one of the original schools. Another on Maui http://www.kekulaopiilani.org/

One of my dreams is to visit Hawaii and before I go, I would like to learn at least some of the basics of the language. I've heard it's polite to at least attempt to do so when visiting another culture.
