Help Me with My Bisaya Please!?
Hello.. Ok truth I am half white but I feel most filipina on the inside. I have been to PI 4 times and just came back 2 weeks ago. I really really want to go back! I speak somewhat ok Tagalog and pretty decent Visayan, but I want to get my pronouncians better and extend my vocabulary. They treat me like the pretty americana girl with the funny accent. Where might I be able to learn better Visayan? Thank u!!! Ya they were totally surprised when I opened my mouth! Hey, I figured my fam can't speak English so I'm going to learn Bisaya. I'm pretty good, but trying to work on ppl buying the fact that I am a filipina lol. Tapes and books don't work- theres so many different Bisayas that I don't buy their translations are right! Sa Surigao del Sur! Don't be a hater. I don't wear too much makeup. I stand out because I'm pale and my nose is tall. I didn't ask you about my features I asked for help with my Bisayan. Don't come hertr to critize, its rude
I wanna speak Bisaya?
My mom and my grandparents always spoke Bisaya to each other, so I only learned English. I'm not a passive speaker either, but I heard Bisaya enough that whenever I hear it, it reminds me of my childhood. I wish I could speak it, it just feels so home-like?

what are the traits of a bisaya?
I am not a bisaya.I grew up in Manila. But I have many close friends and love among the bisaya. But I wonder why so many non bisaya hated them. All of us negative traits. But when it is a bisaya, they scorned on them as something as "bisaya kasi".

for bisaya people only: how do you make humba?
this question is only for people in eastern visayas... how do you make humba? not the vinegar and soy sauce kind... but the kind that uses sugar. the one that's sweet and reddish. it's called binukid nga humba coz it's usually people from the mountains or the provinces that makes really good binukid nga humba. can anyone help me? i've been trying to search for a good recipe online but can't find any. help! if you don't know the answer to this, please don't answer. obviously, you haven't had one before. for people who did, it brings to mind a really good tasting dish. no... it's not the same as how you make vinegar and soy sauce humba. that one is more like soup... while there isn't much soup to the binukid one. more like sauce lang. i know how to make the vinegar and soy sauce humba... but i need a really good binukid humba recipe. i've been craving for that jud. way kahibaw ana noh? paeta...

Where and how should I learn Bisaya?
I want to learn this language because it is spoken in the family. Just for tips, where can I learn it besides through family (they are always busy)? Is there an online chat thing I could join maybe? Or online dictionary. I have one for cebuano, but it doesn't seem very accurate with bisaya. Also, what are some greetings in Bisaya?
What is the best language course to learn tagalog?
Trying to learn tagalog or bisaya. Are there any good language courses out there? I have tried one that was pretty expensive, but turned out to be mostly worthless. Also need something that includes CDs so I will learn to pronounce correctly. The one I have includes CDs, but the people talking are not speaking it correctly, (as I found when I went there). Salamat po. Paalam na!

Should I go to the Philippines for college?
I was wondering how colleges worked there, whether I should stay where I am currently (UAE), if I would get a good job (in the UAE) after college if I studied in De La Salle or any other good college there, and other stuff like that. I am currently in the ninth grade and I heard that I do not need to take grades 11 and 12 to study there (The batch of students before mine has too). My mom is a Filipino and I can speak and understand tagalog and bisaya (Main languages in the Philippines) any other extra information will be appreciated.

Long term American expats, why so few of you speak the local language?
Whether it be tagalog, bisaya, waray, bicolano, whatever. Europeans, non-British ones that is, typically become fluent or at least conversant in a couple of years or less from arrival. To be fair, over the years I have dealt with Americans diplomats, professional businessmen, missionaries and non-profit volunteers who bucked this trend. The irony is that the rest who are least fluent, or downright have completely zero language skills, are the American spouses married to Filipina wives for DECADES. I find it weird, it does not compute. Intentional? Lazy? I mean, how can that be an advantage to them? No wonder these guys also whine about being overcharged of otherwise jiffed by a local. Maybe it's just because they don't understand or simply misunderstand conversations with local pinoys. I can understand why some of their wives would intentionally dissuade them from learning, since it's so much easier for them to talk behind his back--right in front of him. This is not conjecture, I was just in a party where an angry wife is shooting her mouth off about her hubby's faults (e.g., "he's too lazy", "overspender", "always moody" etc.) to an amiga standing directly in front of him in a Filipino dialect. Whenever he gets suspicious about the subject of the conversation, the wife just gives him a wide toothed smile and then her amiga chimes in a lie that they're discussing the rising price of bagoong and hatred of democrats. Seriously. Opinions? Observations?
can you translate this paragraph in bisaya?
The Bailen is one of the municipalities of Cavite. Although it is not known as of the neighboring municipalities there are lots of beautiful traits that can be seen there. It is surrounded by green forests, clean and clear rivers, cold and fresh air and above all kind and hospitable people. May the time comes that it will raise and be identified and may its natural beauty be conserved.
Can you help me with these three questions about Tagalog?
They might be too basic. 1. Are "ho" and "po" intercheangable in a sentence? I know there is a slightly difference (that I am still not sure I understand). Where should it be placed? After the verb? Could it be placed in some other place in the sentence "Saan po ang Bagyo?"? 2. I think I understand the differences and similarities between "saan" and "nasaan". But... can a question with "saan" be answer with "nasa" and a question with "nasaan" be answered with "sa"? As in "Saan doon ang Samar? Doon nasa Bisaya ang Samar". Or the answer MUST be "Doon sa Bisaya ang Samar"? 3. Yes, you guessed right: I am an absolute beginer. And this one will confirm this: In my close-minded western mind, I would have expected that in "Ang mga pulong ito ang Bisaya", the linker -ng were applied to "ito" and not to "pulo"! Does this mean that this linker can be used in words other than adjectives? Salamat for your help. Of course the online dictionary is of no help here. I already know the translations. I am asking about their usage. Only one more thing. Is Baybayin taught at any level? I guess most of edcation is either in Tagalog or in English. I am sorry for my ignorance about this. Is Baybayin script still used in some way? Thanks again.

Does anyone know the language Bisaya?
I know this question has been asked in the past but I was hoping someone could point me in the right direction. I am needing to learn bisaya as easily and as fast as possible. Any help would be great. Yes Bisaya is a language used by natives of the Philippines. I am working with some people and it would be great to be able to speak to them in their native language. I am in the United States and workings with a couple of people who speak Bisaya and hardly any English that is why I am wanting to learn.
