Do you know any other language(s)?

Talk about things about video games. What are your other hobbies? What's your favorite TV show? Are you into sports. Any recommended restaurants? Do you travel?

Aside from English? :mrgreen:

Local dialects (Ilokano, Cebuano, Kapampangan, Bicolano, etc)?

Madali kayang matutunan?

I took up a basic Japanese course. When I play some games with Japanese voices, somehow I was able to understand at least some parts of what the character's are saying. :mrgreen:

Picked up a few French, Spanish, and Italian phrases too after watching Formula 1 races and videos. :lol:

I know a few Kampampangan phrases (since my Lolo was one), a few Cebuano/Bisaya words, and a handful of Batangueno slang/terms...

Other language i understand konti = Nippongo & Thai..

I can understand some common Ilokano words and phrases, but I don't speak in Ilokano.

Japanese
Reading: Hiragana, and a handful of common words in Kanji like 今日 (kyou - today).
Vocabulary: Only the common terms and phrases that you hear in anime, games and TV shows. Those and some phrases used for complimenting and different ways of saying sorry. I can understand the general feeling/message in some conversations when watching J-drama, but I don't really know what they said word per word.
Writing: Can I just type the words instead?
Speaking: As of now, I don't think I can hold a casual conversation without resorting to using a translator app. My relatives also said that the way I speak in Japanese is too polite.
