I would like to learn the language

Dear All

I come from Singapore & have the privilege to travel to philippines for vacation. I would love to learn some visayan language after visiting some of the philipppine islands. How do i go about learning the basic? Is there any reference or something for me to start off with. I hope to be able to understand & answer some simple questions during a conversation or self introduction. eg. hello, thank you.

After the previous visit, would love to come back for more vacations here as philippines has alot more to offer & would like to get to know the culture, people & language etc.

Diskarchix (Diskarte sa Chicks)

-esyot-

I
Sa panahon sa katigulangan
Ang pag diskarte kinahanglang respetuhan
Ma bati ka man o ma gwapo
Uyab halangdon alang kanimo
Ang pagpamisita kinahanglan respetuan
Labi na sa ginikanan sa gipamisitaan
Na’pay sinul-otan haskang pormala
Sapatos ug hinapay gasinaw lang iyara
Naay uban harana ang tirada
Nga diin babaye pwerteng lipaya
Na’pay pagkanta nga kinasingkasing
Nga kon diin kasingkasing sa babaye mosagting
Chorus:
Diskarchix, sa unang panahon
Diskarchix, hasta sad karon
Diskarchix, sa umaabot
Diskarchix, bahalag uyamot
II
Nasay uban magpatorpetorpe

RADYO BISDAK

Mapasalamaton ako nga aduna pa diay mga tawo nga sama sa tigdumala niining maong kutaydapit (website) nga nagpadayon sa mga kalihokan alang sa pagpalambo sa pinulonga'ng binisaya. Managsama kita bai kay damgo ko usab nga mapadayon ang paglambo sa atong kultura nga inanay ng gikutkot sa panahon tungod ra usab sa atong pagpabaya ug pagtugot nga kini mahulipan sa langyaw.

Help wanted digitizing Wolff's Cebuano dictionary

For many years, I've been running a small Philippine dictionary on my website http://www.bohol.ph/diksyunaryo.php. Although this is used quite often, it is fairly limited, and of a rather low quality.

Recently, I've added a large dictionary for Hiligaynon on the site, available http://www.bohol.ph/kved.php. This is nothing less than the complete text of Kaufmann's 1934 Visayan-English dictionary, which, although it shows its age, is still very useful, and includes sample sentences for most Hiligaynon words. Both a searchable interface and a downloadable PDF file are available.

life

all man in this world can;t run away from death. Life is too short for us all, all that we had done, people in the past had already done it. there is nothing new under the sun. all that we do is just like chasing after the wind when we had finish what we are try so hard to complete, we will than feel the emptyness of life that we had hid so long in our heart.

Amused by this site.

I am amused. Learned a lot in a minute. Pagkachuy!
