"Hi there! I'm having a problem with the sentence practice flashcards. The English translation only pops up when I mouse over words on the first card. (Not the second, third, at iba pa). It's the same on both Firefox and Chrome. Maybe it's a problem on my end. But I thought I'd point it out in case there is an issue that could be fixed. Maraming salamat po for this awesome website! I'm really enjoying learning this language, and I'm still amazed that this site is free. Have a great day!..."

"@LosPuke Welcome! Are you aware that "puke" is the Filipino word for the vagina? There are a number of words for it, but that one may be considered as the crudest of them all. I'm sure that if you'll introduce yourself with that name to a Filipino, you'll never hear the end of it. 😂😂😂..."

"@Fujishooter @siOscar Yes, Fujishooter, the use of "hindi" and "wala" can be tricky at times. The suggestion given by siOscar is a very good way to identify which word applies. Also, when it comes to verbs, "hindi" may be a case of not doing or able to do a specific action, while "wala" is not doing or not able to do any action at all. Hindi ko iyon sinabi sa iyo. = I did not say that to you. (might have said some things, but not that one) Wala akong sinabi sa iyo. = I did not say anything..."

"Walang anuman. I'm still learning, myself. For me the main takeaway from that lesson was that in translating given phrases, we of course need to understand the essence of what is being said, but we should not lose sight of what the literal translation is because there is information to be gained from it as well...."

"@Fujishooter "Magkaroon ka ng magandang araw" is the literal translation of "(You) have a good day". However, we don't express the greeting that way in Filipino. What we say is "Magandang araw sa iyo" (A good day to you)...."
