I am also TESOL and TEYL Certificates holder.
I am a Native Filipino.
Learning Filipino is quite difficult because there are lots of grammar rules. But if you will learn the basic, it will eventually becomes easy. I believe that the easiest way to learn a new language is to use it in conversation, try to express yourself using the language after learning new vocabularies. You must also believe in yourself that you can do it no matyer how hard it is. You just need patience and hard work and dedication.
I had some students before and they learned basic words in just 30 minutes.
Conversing is the easiest way
