I'm absolutely useless when it comes to learning foreign languages. My wife on the other hand speaks several Philippines languages/dialects plus English, Spanish and Arabic, and she thinks I'm clever just coz I understand a bit about engineering.

Yeah, they do. But if you ask me, you should learn Tagalog first and the local language...like Kapampangan if you are on Walking Str...I mean Pampanga. Me, I'd rather re-learn Kapampangan first. I'm Kapampangan 100% effing represent!!! Pagmaragul ku di paning alte!!!🤣😂

Same in the "world", you should learn English if you're in CONUS. Assimilate man. I'd learn Japanese asap if I was a expat there.

Haha. Cool. My wife isn't a Pinay. I have to learn her country language as well. Mostly "I love you" and stuff like that 🤣😂😎😍 Plus where I'm from in the U.S., you need to know a little Spanish, Cantonese, Russian, Mandarin, Korean, Japanese, Indian, and etc.
