Cebuano Lessons: A Short Visayan Dialogue


Listen to these Japanese Students practice a short conversation:

Mai:  Maayong buntag.
      Good morning.

Genki:   Maayong buntag, sab.
          Good morning too.

Mai:  Kumusta? 
              How are you?

Genki:  Maayo man, ikaw?
Fine.  You?

Mai:  Maayo sab.  Asa ka moadto?
Fine too.  Where are you going?

Genki:  Sa akong kwarto, ikaw?
To my room, you?

Mai:  Sa baybay.  Diin ka gikan?
To the beach.  Where have you been?

Genki:  Sa classroom.
From the classroom.

Mai:  Sigi.  Adto na ko.
Okay.  I'll go now.

Genki:  Sigi.  Ayu-ayo.
Okay.  Take care.

How does one study Binisaya using a dialogue:  The first step for any learner is to be familiar with the vocabulary:  List down the vocabulary, write the words, memorize the words,  use the words in context, put pictures if possible.  


After memorizing the important vocabulary, you may study the dialogue.  It's always good to practice a dialogue with a partner.  You may repeat reading the dialogue for as long as you like.   Practice with a partner for as long as you like.  Repetition makes you master these basic expressions.    After that, you may substitute the different content words with whatever is applicable.  

Lastly, try to use the newly learned expressions and vocabulary whenever applicable.  Good luck.
