Learn to Speak Filipino
To recognize Filipino and respect it by appreciating the Filipino identity as they decide to begin their journey of unraveling an essential part of themselves by immersing in the language, gather and then carry bits and pieces of its rich culture and meaningful history, as they continue their journey and reach the destination of owning and embracing what is Filipino, be it culture, people or nation, making whole what was once deemed as half.
The Beginner’s Level is for the adventurous and daring learners- those who are willing to venture into what is called “Filipino” because they know someone who is, or they might have heard or even known about it, but never really understood what it is.
