Magandang gabi sa iyong lahat! Maraming salamat, Hellboy, sa i-accept ng kwento ko. Si Tyler ako at nag-aaral ako ng tagalog mula 2011. Pero tungkol sa'ng pag-aral ko sa kolehiyo, wala ako'ng oras para magpatuloy ng pag-aral sa tagalog. Pinay ang asawa ng tatay ko, pero masyadong tamad sya para magusap kasama ko sa tagalog (gusto nya ng English, syempre). Saka, ang gusto ng mga pinoy na kaibigan ko ay mag-uusap kasama ko sa English. Nakatira ako dito sa States at konte lang mga pinoy sa lungsod ko. Ano pwede kong gawa para tumaas ng tagalog ko? Maraming salamat! Translation: Good evening, all! Thank you, Hellboy, for accepting my account. I'm Tyler and I've been studying Tagalog since 2011. However, because of my studies at college, I don't have much time to continue studying Tagalog. My father's wife is Pinay, but she's too lazy to converse with me in tagalog (she likes English, of course). Also, my filipino friends all want to speak to me in English. I live here in the States and there is only a small population of Pinoy in my city. What can I do to improve my tagalog? Thanks a lot! (Responses in English, Tagalog, or even Cebuano [i can understand a little bit, due to the proximity] would be greatly appreciated!)
Easyrider posted a topic in Spoken Languages: English, Cebuano, Etc.Some foreigners visiting or living in the Philippines have been lead to believe that the local languages of Cebuano and Tagalog do not have gender words. This is not true. There are many words in Cebuano and Tagalog which are gender specific. And, like in English there are words which can be either gender. To me, it wouldn't seem practical to have a language that doesn't have words which refer to a male or female. Can you imagine this happening? You heard that your mother just had a baby so you call to ask her about the baby. "Hi mom, how are ? I'm fine. What does your baby have between it's legs?" Remember, there are no words for boy or girl. What kind of language would that be? Well, I knew that couldn't be true so with the assistance of a Filipina, I made a gender words list that foreigners can use when trying to learn the local languages. I also attched a link to the list where you can translate words for yourself. Gender Words Translated.docx
