Question: Tagalog speakers - my interests and relevance to the Philippines lies in the Visayas and Mindanao due to the people I know in those places. I chose to start learning Tagalog because it was the most accessible language to learn, but I realize I need to learn Cebuano or “Bisaya.” Do you think that I’m at an advantage having a short background in Tagalog, for learning Bisaya? What might be some of the major grammatical differences between the two languages?
 
Thanks,

Does learning Romanian help with Spanish? Yes, but its a weird way to do it.

Go here and do the Cebuano-Bisaya courses.
 
www.bohol.ph/wced.ph p
 
This is the "tagaloglessons dictionary" for Cebuano-Bisaya (yes i know its on Bohol.ph, but its for allCebuano).
 
If you want to learn Cebuano learn Cebuano, don't learn Tagalog to learn Cebuano. Tagalog is typologically very divergent from most Central Philippine languages because of its close proximity to Central Luzon languages (in particular Kapampangan). It is like Romanian (very Balkan and Slavic and divergent) compared to Spanish (much more typical Romance language).

The cross-family comparison was very intriguing!
