4-Day Philippine Languages Online Private Class | Kapampangan, Pangasinense, Chavacano, Waray
Grasp basic knowledge of 4 Philippine languages with this online class package. These private online classes can be taken anywhere you are and are broken down into 4 sessions. You’ll learn one language per session: basic Kapampangan, basic Pangasinan, basic Chavacano, and basic Waray-Waray. All sessions will last 60 minutes, and you can schedule them once a day, every other day, or even once a week.
There are over 120 different languages spoken in the Philippines, and native speakers of the languages are scattered over 7,600 islands. This class package will teach you basic phrases in Kapampangan, Pangasinense, Chavacano, and Waray-Waray, as well as the history and culture that helped shape these languages. You'll be in good hands as each private session will be taught by language experts and native speakers of each language. These classes will be taught via Zoom meetings, and you will be given the link to the meeting room before your scheduled classes begin.
Your first class will be basic Kapampangan. As the name suggests, most native speakers of this language can be found in the province of Pampanga. Also known as Pampango, the language is full of words borrowed and derived from the Spanish language. It is the 7th most spoken native language in the country.
In your second class, you'll learn about the language, history, and culture of the province of Pangasinan. Their language is known as Pangasinense and is the 8th most spoken in the Philippines. Because of its richness and many dialects, some language experts consider it one of the most difficult Philippine languages, but with a bit of background on the province's heritage and culture, you'll be able to have a basic understanding of Pangasinense.
Next, you will learn about basic Chavacano, the only Spanish-based creole language in Asia. You can find some native Chavacano speakers in Cavite, the Davao Region, Cotabato City, and Maguindanao, but you'll find most in Zamboanga City, with over half of the native speakers in the country living there. The language itself has at least 6 varieties.
You'll study basic Waray-Waray in your last private class. The language is native to Eastern Visayas and has at least 20 dialects and subdialects. Native speakers of the language are called Waray. It is the third most spoken Visayan language and is a second language to some people in Northern Samar and Leyte.
These four language classes will give you a basic understanding of not just how Filipinos talk but also their history and culture.
