Smile Hola from Philippines!

Hello everyone!

I have always been interested in learning the Spanish Language. I just had no extra time to do it. This summer ( it is our summer break here in the Philippines) I will be attending Spanish classes at Instituto Cervantes de Manila. It is a month training sponsored by our school. I don't want to fail my school for this opportunity so I am doing some advance study hoping I am at least familiar with the basic things I have to learn in Spanish language like the parts of the body and numbers before the training starts. I am very happy when I found this site for I know it is going to big help for me in my journey in making myself equip with the skills I will be needing in becoming a speaker of the Spanish language.I hope you guys will help me with my quest. In return, don't hesitate to message me if there's something you think I can help you with. ¡muchas gracias!

¡Bienvenidos! The Philippines used to be a Spanish colony (it was actually governed from New Spain [Mexico] for a while), and many of its indigenous languages (Tagalog, Cebuano, Hiligaynon, etc.) have loanwords from Spanish.

Hola Haven!

Como estas?

Si! Today is my first day of class at Instituto Cervantes. I have learned some of Spanish vocabularies that are very much similar to our dialects here.

Hola Villa! Muy bien, gracias y tu?

And want to help me with my quest for Spanish proficiency? Muchismas gracias!

We learned basic stuff at school today. I still have a headache for information overload I think haha but I had fun.

Como te llamas? Is Villa your real nama? Me llamo Nerissa. I preferred to be called Neri thought.

De donde eres? A native from Spain? Soy Filipina.

I am going to work on my homework now. The Institute provided with books and textbooks as well. I will be doing 2 pages. Hope I can get an A with this! Wish me luck


Neri

DF sola tiene casi la población del estado de California. Si incluye el resto del pais, California tiene una fracción de la población de México.

Si se puede tener confianza en los datos que presenta este articulo de wikipedia, Estados Unidos es el país número cinco con respeto al número de hablantes nativos del español.
