Come on a journey with me and I’ll share some of what I have learned about the cost of living Cebu, Philippines.
Should an Expat Living In The Philippines Learn Filipino
Well that depends on what the expat wants to get from his stay. For me, it is obvious, the answer is yes. Humans are social animals. True some of us are much more social than others. I’m probably near the low end of the need to socialize. Yet, there is so much I’m missing because I can’t understand the language around me. Sometimes I can’t communicate with people in shops. This is less true in the big malls. Even there communication is limited. If I go beyond the basics, I get a blank stare. My English doesn’t sound quit like theirs. They speak in Filipino accent and I speak southern. In my opinion the best form of English ever spoken but many don’t understand it or see it my way. 😎
