I have been working and still working in hospitality. I graduated from Hotel and Restaurant Management in the Philippines and came to Austria in 2011. I am friendly and have the longest patience which Filipinos are famous for. I am married and have 2 daughters. Cooking and baking is my hobby turned into a passion. I love meeting new people and learning from them. As an ex-pat in Austria, I have enough to share but still a lot to learn. You will be learning a lot from Filipino culture and not just the language!
The easiest way to learn Filipino is to have conversation with natives.
It actually depend on the person. Some will take only half a year to have a conversational Filipino and some will take longer than that.
