Bud Brown, “I learned Tagalog in only 48 years.”

Oh my wife…she says you should know Tagalog, so you will understand if someone says to you “Mabaho ka!” (You stink.) All righty, I guess that’s a good enough reason. LOL!

  1. I saw your title and laughed out loud. I too have been slowly learning Tagalog via my wife. We have been together for over 7 years. During that time, I am beginning to understand Tagalog but can only speak a little Taglish. Trying to prevent nose bleeds. LOL! I do agree that learning a new language, especially Tagalog is more than a marathon than a sprint. Thanks for wonderful videos and be safe in this “New Normal”

  2. I think it’ will be better to start learning the greeting then the bad words, because that what you will start hearing after each mistake you make in dealing with any new culture! And remember to speak slowly with clear pronunciation and never forget to smile, always!
    Thank you so much dear Bud and lovely Gloria for another great sharing of your knowledge, time, and fun.
    Good luck and wish you all the best. Be safe, stay safe, stay home! Best regards/NedπŸ‘πŸ‘
