8-Day Philippines Ilocano Language for Beginners Online Class
Learn how to speak basic Ilocano with this 8-session beginner’s online language course. This course is for those who want to communicate with locals in the Ilocos region of the Philippines, as it comes with 8 60-minute sessions that will teach you useful phrases you can use in your daily interactions.
Your eight classes may be scheduled once a day for eight consecutive days, but if you would like to space them out, you may also take them every other day or once a week.

Your next class will allow you to create deeper relationships with locals, as your instructor will teach you what to say when getting to know other people. Your third class will teach you how to count in Ilocano, as well as the words for the hours, days, and months. Before teaching you more new words and phrases, your instructor will allow you to practice those you’ve already learned through a roleplaying activity during your fourth session.
Your fifth class will tackle words pertaining to family, friends, and other relationships, while the sixth class will focus on commonly used verbs and adverbs used to describe daily activities. You will learn how to ask for directions and order food in Ilocano during your seventh class.
