English, Japanese, and sometimes Hawaiian. Most of the streets in Honolulu are in Hawaiian, but they don't really speak it.

English

The main languages of Hawaii are English, hawaiian (native), spanish, french, Italian and Portuguese.

Haoles speak English, locals speak pigeon, a type of broken English mixed with Hawaiian and Japanese words that have been truncated and butchered to the point that they have become their own word with their own meaning. Garanz Ball Bearenz, for example means "guaranteed".

Answer

Hawaiians speak mostly english, however, they do have their own language which many of us speak daily. In the early 1950's the US government tried to abolish the language (imagine the nerve...), but it survived, and today, there is a massive movement to bring it back. Also, early Hawaii was heavily inhabited and developed by the Japanese (makes the Pearl Harbor attack even more of an atrocity, no?); so, there is a lot of Japanese spoken there as well.
They speak the same English but they do say some words in Hawaiian.
They speak English and Hawaiian.
English and Hawaiian are both official languages in Hawaii.
English, but many other languages including Hawaiian are spoken there.
English, Hawaiian, Pidgin, Mandarin, Japanese....just to name a few.
Pidgin (Hawaiian) is the native language.

But English is the primary language.
English and Hawaiian are both official languages in Hawaii.

The two official languages of the U.S. State of Hawaii are:

  1. English
  2. Hawaiian


English is the common language of Hawaii, spoken by nearly everyone.

Hawaiian is taught in schools, but only about 26,000 people can speak it fluently, which is less than 5% of the population of ethnic Hawaiians.


Hawaiian Creole English, often inaccurately called "Hawaiian Pidgin", is spoken by about 600,000 people. It is not related to a language called Pidgin Hawaiian,which went extinct in the mid 20th Century.


Here is a list of the most common languages of Hawaii:

  1. English
  2. Hawaiian Creole English
  3. Hawaiian
  4. American Sign Language
  5. Japanese
  6. Spanish
