How am i meant to know this already

I think this is meant to show after kākou and "a hui hou kāua". But I did notice there were questions where new words weren't being highlighted.

Sometimes kāua and then kakou which is it,?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/KiUlv

kāua is you and I (2 people, speaker inclusive) kākou is you and you and I (3 or more people, speaker inclusive)

So the "all" in the prompt here (Until we ALL meet again) suggests more than 2 people. If it were just "until we meet again," it could be either.

Does the "A" have any significance? Why is it different from just "Hui hou kakou"?

Difference between a hui hou kaua, and, a hui hou kakou? Said both was until we meet again, but this question said i was wrong when i answered with kaua.

Kaua is you and I, just the two of you. Kakou is for more than one person, perhaps that is why
