Hawaii is the only state that has two official languages: English and Hawaiian.

While most streets and public buildings have Hawaiian names, all signage, documents, brochures and other materials are in English (though many can be requested in other languages including Japanese, Korean, French, Mandarin and Spanish).

And despite our very diverse population, including large immigrant communities, most people on Oahu speak English.
