"@AkoSiMaganda Thank you for clarifying this. I'm using Pimsleur for Tagalog and I learned the Paano saying from them. "Ano sa Tagalog ang Cook" sounds easier to say. I like Pimsleur but they teach strictly tagalog (no taglish) so I feel i'm learning some words that might not be used as much. Such as Magsisimula.. my wife says that even though they may use that word, sometimes they just say start instead "start na ng klase"...."

"You need to be fluent in Tagalog to use phrases "pasensiya", "Paumanhin" or "patawad" as this is very critical to express sincerity. Otherwise, you can just say "sorry' or "excuse me" "Patawad "should only be used if you are asking for forgiveness. "Pasensya" is a casual way to say sorry. "Paumanhin "is for 'excuse me"...."

"Someone correct me if i'm wrong as I'm also learning Tagalog. I believe you ask them "Paano sabihin (english word) sa Tagalog".. @je strella18 This is more likely, "Paano sabihin sa Tagalog ang (english word)? (gramatically correct) Paano is How in English. but it will be easier to ask "Ano" (What) "Ano sa Tagalog ang (cook)? What is "cook" in Tagalog?..."

"AkoSiMaganda Ah! Thanks for the "Dahan-dahan lang." (Duh-hun-duh-hun) phrase! Now I can say that instead of showing my blank look of stupidity that I usually show. Also - what is the best way to say, "How do you say (any english word) in Tagalog?" if I just need one or two words that I don't know? (In spanish it was "como se dice " I think.) @GlenM Hello GlenM, If you want to ask, 'How do you say (English) in Tagalog?" You should say, " Ano sa tagalog ang (english word)? (Ah-no sa T..."

"Does anyone say the phrases "Pasensiya," "Paumanhin," or "Patawad" anymore. Ive heard it's more common just to say the english "sorry", or "excuse me" otherwise you'll sound too formal. Is this true?..."

"What does it mean when you add i- in front of a word like i-sulat for example or i-cultivate I see that often in conversations @0916maxx In that particular example, "I-sulat", "I" represents conjunction that gives "command or instruction" Example: 1. "Isulat" mo ang iyong pangalan. " means "Write" your name. 2. i-bigay. "Ibigay" mo yan sa akin. - " Give it to me!" I-cultivate, for instance, is only just an example of how Filipino uses "Taglish" (Tagalog-English) in a senten..."
