Ep 021 – Eileen Ramos

Derek is joined by Eileen Ramos again. Eileen taught Derek some conversational Tagalog words which can be quite handy should you plan to visit the Philippines.


  • Tagalog is the main language in the Philippines and it’s a beautiful and emotive language.
  • Eileen and Derek discussed a few conversational Tagalog words;
  1. “Walang anuman” (proper), no problem (improper) – Thank you
  2. “Derecho” – Straight
  3. “Kanan” – Right
  4. “Kaliwa” – Left
  5. “Sa kanto” – At the corner
  6. “Para” – Stop
  7. “Tabi” – Side
  8. “Pasok” – Enter
  9. “Dito” – Here
  10. “Kuya” – older brother
  11. “Ate” – older sister
  12. “Pa” – Yet
  13. “Isa” – One
  14. “Dalawa” – Two
  15. “Tatlo” – Three
  16. “Apat” – Four
  17. “Lima” – Five
  18. “Una” – First
  19. “Pangalawa” – Second
  20. “Pangatlo” – Third
  21. “Pang-apat” – Fourth
  22. “Pang-lima” – Fifth
  23. “Salamat” – Thank you
  24. “Humingi” – Ask
  25. “Maganda” – Beautiful
  26. “Pangit” – Ugly
  27. “Matapang” – Brave
  28. “Tapos na” – Finished
  • According to Eileen, Tagalog uses a lot of syllables in each word.

Key Points

  • The Filipino Language is a very emotive but interesting language
  • Filipinos are very good English speakers which makes it quite difficult to learn their language since they can switch from English to Tagalog very quickly.
  • Learning the Tagalog can be an advantage and can be quite handy should you plan to visit or do business in the Philippines.
