Hi, I’m Regie from Canada! I grew up only being able to understand like ~70% of Tagalog since my immigrant parents were so busy hustling to provide for us that they couldn’t have the time to pass on the language. Luckily I would sometimes get babysat by my lola, who would give basic Tagalog lessons to me and the other Filipino kids she took care of! I want to learn Tagalog better because I want to stay grounded to my roots, and hopefully pass it onto my future kids so they don’t lose that connection either. Duolingo failed me by not offering Tagalog for the past X years I kept checking, but learning apps can only do so much-glad there’s this community I can feel safe with asking questions!
