Speaking Cebuano

how to speak Cebuano? a little disclaimer.

Hi, my name is Chris and i've been living in Cebu for God knows how long. I'm not claiming to be a professor or a teacher of Cebuano, and i'm not saying that i'm an expert either. Cebuano, as most will know is a dialect in the Philippines, and unlike Tagalog/Filipino, there is no formal training or education of the language. Usually, the dialect is taken up at birth and learned from then on. I know there will be a lot of issues that will spring up especially on grammar and spelling, however I am very much willing to change whatever mistake I've made. Anyways, to those who want to learn the language/dialect don't hesitate to comment the articles or message me here at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it Have fun learning the language! 

Update 2011: I've been busy with other things lately, and especially my new website (Your Top 10 Everything) however, i'll promise to update more and make it more "reader-friendly". I've noticed there's a few people interested in learning the language, and its pretty hard to make lessons if no one reads them. So i hope if you do get some learnings from my lessons, comment down below or like my facebook page! :)
