Cebuano Vocabulary: Mga Parti sa Lawas (Parts of the Body)

One of the things that a language learner needs to know is knowledge about one's physical state and how to express bodily conditions.  It is one of the basic knowledge in language learning.   When we were kids, we learned about body parts through some rhyming songs.  If you can recall the songs that made you learn the body parts, whether it was in your native language or another language, you will realize that it made a big difference in your language learning.  For now, let me just introduce to you the necessary parts of the body that you need to know.  You can use the fade away method when you memorize them:
