I was gonna make a masterpost for Filipino/Tagalog but there’s not a lot of resources online so I decided to make graphics here instead! I’ll make more in the future but here are just some common words/phrases in the language. Filipino has a lot of borrowed words from Spanish and English due to colonialism and most of the time it’s difficult to say a complete sentence in Filipino alone because English words are deeply mixed into the language, hence Taglish. It’s a norm to switch between English and Filipino midsentence or even midword. There’s no Filipino translation for hi/hello so we just use them instead. We also use English phrases like ‘happy birthday’ and ‘excuse me’ more commonly than their Filipino translations. I lived in the Philippines for 12 years and I’m fluent so if you guys are learning Filipino or have any questions feel free to approach me!
