My name is Jam, a 20-something-year-old native of Cebu, a certified Bisdak who has a degree in BS Tourism Management. Being a tourism graduate made me understand and appreciate different places, cultures, and races. I love to learn about different cultures and it starts with learning a language. I studied Spanish before and a little bit of French. That's why I also like to teach people my native language because I believe that learning Bisaya/Cebuano is just as fun, challenging, and interesting as learning foreign languages.
Bisaya-Cebuano is very easy to learn because the sentence structure is simple. The words are read exactly as how they're spelt, unlike foreign languages like French and German where words are pronounced differently from their actual spellings. And if you are a Tagalog-native or somehow familiar with Tagalog/Filipino, you'll find that Bisaya is easy to learn too because they have similar sentence structures and there are a lot of words that are similar and/nor close to some Tagalog/Filipino words. There are many Bisaya words that were borrowed from Spanish too!
An absolute beginner who practices conversational Bisaya everyday can learn so many words and phrases in a month of practice. You may not be able to speak full-sentence in Bisaya with that span of time, but guaranteed you can already understand a couple of words and phrases when hearing Bisaya-natives talking.
