Hi. I'm a Pinay living in the US and new to forums. I am interested to know if any of the moms here live "abroad" too and if they have started to teach their child(ren) Filipino and how they do it.

Dito lang kami sa Pilipinas. Pero sa mga kamag-anak kong nasa ibang bansa, they always tell us
na importante talaga na marunong ng Tagalog ang anak nila.
Ginagawa nila, kinakausap nila as as much as possible ng Tagalog ang kanilang anak sa bahay.
Katwiran nila, paglabas ng mga anak nila English ang usapan kaya sa bahay Tagalog lang.

Sa mga babies, nasa iyo kung anong language ang una mong gustong matutunan ng iyong anak.
Kagaya ng anak ko, kahit nandito kami sa Pinas, kinakausap ko ng English, kinakausap ko rin minsan ng Tagalog, madalas English. Kasi yung mga kasama ko sa bahay madalang namang mag-English.
Maganda yun para bilingual ang bata. Mas maraming alam na language mas maganda.
2 y/o pa lang sya pero hindi naman sya nalilito halimbawa tinanong ko, '' Where is Daddy?" or           " Nasaan si Daddy?" Naiintindihan nya pareho.

Isang kagandahan din ng marunong mag-Tagalog, kapag halimbawang malalaki na ang anak nyo and then nagbakasyon dito sa atin...
Nangyari kasi minsan dito sa Tita ko na may bisita silang Pilipino pero hindi marunong mag-Tagalog.
Nagbakasyon ng 1week sa bahay ng lola ko kasama ang mga Tita. Walang ibang kumakausap sa kanya kundi yung nakakapag-English lang at kapag walang mag-tatranslate para sa kanya hindi nya naiintindihan ang usapan. Kasi hindi nakakaintindi ng Tagalog.
So mahirap din syempre yung kalagayan nya, diba?

Ang isang pinsan ko naman, nakakaintindi ng Tagalog pero hindi nakakapagsalita ng Tagalog.
So nakakausap sya ng mga kamag-anak namin, sinasagot na lang nya ng English. Good thing,
nakakaintindi naman ng English karamihan dito sa atin, hirap nga lang sa pagsasalita.
Mas maganda yun at least may communication pa rin, diba?

So sa mga kapitbahay at kamag-anak na nakatira sa ibang bansa, kwento nila kapag nagtatanong ang anak nila or nagkukwento na English ang ginamit , hindi nila sinasagot or pinapansin. That way, napipilitang mag-Tagalog ang bata.
That is one suggestion, effective daw according to them.

Karma to you for your suggestions. Salamat sa iyong pagsagot sa tanong ko. I'll reply in English since I think faster in English. I'll try some of your suggestions to my children smile. My American husband thinks we have a few good excuses for not teaching our children the Filipino language since one of their parents is American and there are very few Filipinos living in our town who still speak Filipino fluently (me included). I have even met several Fil-Ams who were born & raised in the suburbs by Filipino parents who do not speak nor understand Filipino. I have only been living here for five years but I have already forgotten a lot of Filipino words that is why I am not confident about talking to my children in Filipino. I was hoping there would be other Pinays like me out there who have found other means of exposing their children to the Filipino language.

Hello twoAngels! I'm also Pinay living here in US. Surely, I will teach my girls to speak Filipino, I'm already starting it while they are still young because learning a second language at a young age is natural and effortless. And like you my husband told me that I don't really need to teach them Filipino since we are living here in US, and if I really want to I have to wait till they are fluent in English 'coz he thinks it will cause them speech delay. But I disagree with that since speech-language problems are less likely to occur when both languages are introduced early. There are greater possibilities of problems if children are introduced to a second language during the preschool years after another language was used exclusively.

I understand you are not confident enough in teaching your children in Filipino 'coz you hardly speak Filipino yourself anymore. But still, you know better than them. If it will be hard on you, well, you don't really need to teach them to speak like filipinos, just introduce some words to them so they will be familiar to it 'coz somehow they are part Filipino. Wouldn't be nice if your kids speak or understand more than one language? It will not just benefit them to be bilingual but also boosts their self-confidence and broadens their outlook to different cultures & expressing themselves. Asking for any means of exposing your children to the Filipino language??? You already have it, you only need yourself & your Little Reader. Make your own category files in tagalog and include it in your playlist, & talk to them in tagalog. Everytime I talk to my girls, I repeat it in tagalog. If you'd forgotten some Tagalog words, refreshen your mind by watching any Filipino movies or shows, you can find lots of it in youtube. You would be the best means of exposing your children to different language, an invaluable gift that would equip that child long term for survival in a multitude of environments.

hi ladies, pinay din ako living in the middle east, UAE, im married to a Jordanian.
my hubby requested me to prioritized first teaching arabic and english before Tagalog, his reason is quite rational, he said that it will be very difficult to pronounce words in arabic if he does not learn it from now. i speak a little arabic buy it still does not sound like one. kase yung "K" and "H" sa kanila over emphasis kung bigkasin like, its weird i know.
but my son hears me often speaking in Tagalog on the phone so i guess even without me really sitting down to teach him the language, he will eventually learn how to speak it.

(sorry guys, i have to type in english kse ang bagal ko sa tagalog typing Wink )

Hi sis jsmonton, tulad mo nandito rin kami sa UAE  smile
My 3-yr old boy is now talking in English, minsan nakakagulat kasi nakakapagsalita na rin sya ng Tagalog at his very young age.  Natututunan nya ang Tagalog pag sila lang ng tagapag-alaga nya ang naiiwan sa bahay. big grin   Siguro mas maganda pa rin matuto sya ng Tagalog coz in the end babalik at babalik pa rin kami ng Pinas. 
Worry lang ako ngyon kasi he needs to learn and study Arabic when he go to school this September (which I think one of the required subject in any school here in Dubai) Parang lalabas nga dalawa kaming mag-aaral para maturuan ko sya in case my exams or activities sa school. LOL

Very well said sheeberi.

Ganyan din ang katwiran ko. Kaya nga in-expose ko ang anak ko sa English at Tagalog.
Mas maraming language na alam, mas maraming advantage.

Tama ang sinabi ng husband mo jsmonton. Kasi yung Tagalog parang madali lang matutunan.
May mga kilala ako na walang alam na Tagalog words pero madaling natuto.
And for those na medyo may alam sa showbiz sa Pinas, remember Ogie's Michelle and Dayanara Torres? Michelle is Australian while Dayanara is Puerto Rican. Pero ang tatas managalog! Galing!
Natuto kagad.

Noong college ako, may mga classmates akong
Muslim. They told me na napakahirap talaga ng Arabic. Kahit nga daw yung matatanda sa kanila
hindi maperfect ang grammar sa pagsasalita at pagsulat nito.

One time, may kailangan kaming ipa-translate na document dito sa Muslim Affairs sa Pilipinas.
Mismong silang mga expert na at iyon ang trabaho e talgang umamin sa amin na nahirapan silang
i-translate ang document from Arabic to English. Lalo na yung maliliit na characters na naka-print dun.

Wow, paglaki ng anak mo 3 language ang alam nya... Galing!

Yes. Yes and yes. If we have the chance, we should teach our kids to be bilingual. My husband at first doesn't want me to teach my baby filipino. He believed that this will confuse the baby while learning the primary language. And he doesnt see the point of learning filipino since majority of the Filipino speaks English. Filipinos are so educated that almost everyone understand english. However, teaching kid a second language always have an advantage.
