@Benjostoked, welcome to the forum. Bakit 'di ka magumpisa ng bagong tema sa tagalog (why don't you start a new topic in Tagalog)?
@irmamar, Benjostoked said "Is there any good/beautiful topic?"
Si, yo conozco el añil, porque nosotros hacé utilizado está lo usábamos para blanquear las mantas blancas. ( yes, I know añiel for we used it to whiten our white blankets).
@JPablo, si, el color azul es muy bonito porque está es el color del mar y del cielo en los tonos variantes en sus diferentes tonalidades. ( yes, the color blue is very beautiful because it is the color of the ocean and the sky in varrying shades.
@ irmamar, I will try to translate tagalog topic, if the poster does not translate it in english.
Some corrections and thanks for the translation.

How do you say blue and indigo in Tagalog?

Gracias y de nada.Y me gustaria decir tu traducion de mi frases es muy bonito y sonidos poeticos.

Blue=bughaw
indigo=anyil (Tagalog just changed the spelling of añiel)

bughaw is also used to describe something of Royal lineage (blood) as in
dugong bughaw, which literally means blue blood (royal blood).
blood= dugo

Bughaw. Thanks. But I can see that Tagalog is difficult.

En español también se dice "sangre azul". As aristocrats didn't use to work down the sun, they were very pale. So, their veins looked really blue down their skin.

We say añil, not añiel.

I meant añil, I mispelled, sorry.

Thanks for expalining the etymology of these words "blue blood".

Dugong Bughaw is not part of daily spoken tagalog. I've seen/read/heard this in Filipino short stories/fiction/novel/filipino films only. I'm sure the words originated from the Spanish language.

May be Tagalog is difficult to pronounce but grammatically speaking, I think it is the easiest and simplest because the rootword does not change its form or completely disappear. If one removes all the letters that's been added to a word to make it a past, present, future or to make a noun/adjective become a verb; same word will remain.

Hi Irmamar,

I need some clarification of this Spanish statement, since I'm not quite adept yet in interpreting correctly written or spoken Spanish. Did you mean to say:
"Is English Spoken in the Philippines as it is spoken all over the world?"

Thank you.

Not every Filipino is able to speak English, they may be able to understand some English but only speak it minimally. Being able to speak English well depends on location and level of education. Filipinos living in towns and provinces with modern technologies and businesses will be more likely to understand and speak English than the ones living in remote villages and farms. I would expect that Filipinos with college education should be fluent in English. My information may not be accurate since I have been away from the Philippines for so long. I'm not familiar with the current Curriculum of the Philippine School System. When I went to school there, textbooks were written in English but I don't know if this is still the case.

So, I understand that English is not only taught in schools, but used to teach, too. Are all classes in English or there are classes in Tagalog, too?

(I mean when you were there, of course).

When I was there, I started learning Tagalog grammar, poetry/literature in 1st and 4th year in high school. I spent 2nd and 3rd year high school in a private high school where all the classes were taught in English.
