Bakit Hindi in the Tagalog Language however I have been out of the Philippines for a month or more and already forgot my two word volcabulary.
However, I said, "How many foreigners speak Tagalog?"
She said, "Vietnamese people."
Hmm... She go me, this is a foreigner, however I tend to think of Foreigners as only westernized people, a not so good perception as the Philippines is full of Koreans, Japanese and Chinese. I am in a Korean Internet Cafe.
I suppose on hindsight it was bad manners on my part to say this... Tagalog is an important language to her, however it looks like only 10 million people on the planet speak this language so very low on the need to learn list.
On the other hand the question is normal, they want to know if I speak Tagalog, I have yet to meet on Foreigner that speaks Tagalog and for that matter, I have not met one that has learned my two word volcabulary, so I am an expert for Foreigners that speak Tagalog.
After typing this I should remember or maybe remember how to spell the word.
