Have you considered learning Tagalog or Cebuano? Think about this.


Filipinos absolutely love for us to speak to them their local languages. Whether it is Tagalog (the national language), or Cebuano (the language spoken primarily in the Visayas or Mindanao), you will be more accepted, more appreciated, and more respected. All of this, simply because you began learning the languages of the Philippines.


I know this, because I have spent time learning Cebuano for more than eleven years. Your girlfriend, fiancée, or wife, and her family, will be amazed and impressed, that you cared enough to learn her language. Whenever you visit her family, you can greet them in their language, showing them respect that they will not expect. They will smile from ear to ear, upon seeing you speak to them.


Even if you only learn some of the language, they will see that you are trying. Most importantly, they will see that you respect their culture enough to learn the language commonly spoken in the area of the Philippines where she is from.


Below  is an introductory guide to Cebuano. This is the book I learned from, when I first moved to the Philippines (Cebu) to live. I began learning basic words, then phrases, and then on to complete sentences. I later hired a tutor to teach me Cebuano, which was the best choice I ever made in my life, regarding language education.

Lastly, the national language of the Philippines, Tagalog. Tagalog is the most widely spoken of all the languages of the Philippines. (There are eight major languages, but Tagalog and Cebauno are more widely spoken than any others.) If your g/f, fiancée, or wife is from an area where Tagalog is spoken, rather than Cebuano, you may wish to invest in learning this language instead. After all, if you learn Tagalog, you will be guaranteed to be able to communicate with someone, anywhere in the country. Tagalog is taught in schools throughout the country. So, most every Filpino will know some, if not fluent in Tagalog. Click on the image below to read more about "Headstart for the Philippines".
