Today I am sharing you this 10 Basic words that we Filipino use all the time. My husband and kids wanted to learn how to speak my language so I teach them. So let’s get started.
- Salamat. = Thank you.
- Kamusta? = How are you?
- Oo. = Yes.
- Hindi. = No.
- Ako. = I. Me.
- Ikaw. = You.
- Sarap! = Delicious! or Yummy
- Paumanhin = Sorry, excuse me.
- Paalam. = Farewell
When we use these words above we always put the “Po” this word is a sign of respect in phrases and sentences
For instance we say :
Salamat Po , Kumsta Po, Oo Po, Hindi Po.
Some use the word “Opo” it’s the polite from Oo. Our parents always tell us to use the “Po” & “Opo” as a sign of respect especially to our elderly.
