Learn filipino ep 1 – being polite
In the beginning, we are doing the “Ocho ocho” dance. This was popular about 2010.
Your experience in the Philippines (or any country) will be way better if you are kind and polite.
For example, say “Salamat” to flight attendant.
“Mabuhay” means welcome to my place.
Another tip is for transportation. Used metered taxi’s. And when you get to the car you say “meter please”
Thank you so much – “Maraming Salamat” but when talking to a person way older than you you say
Maraming Salamat Po
In bisaya – we say “salamat” with smile and raise eyebrows
Sir or boss – we say it all the time to someone that we respect highly or to someone who’s high ranking at work or any other place.
You say sir if you’re meeting your fiance’s father for the first time. You only stop saying it.
Until they say call by their name or call them dad or papa.
When do you use “po” ? You use it when you are talking to someone older or to your wife’s parents and grandparents.
When you are in front of someone , you want to get their attention, you just say excuse me.
Do not randomly talk to strangers about how are they hows their day going. The only time you do that is in the airport when they ask where you going?
Mano po – bless to lola papa and mama
Mahal kita – Mahal na mahal kita
Gusto kita – Gustong gusto kita I like you
Welcome! – Mabuhay
magkano – how much
magkano ito tripod – how much is this tripod?
You’re welcome – Walang Anuman
