Cultural Insight
John: Now it's time for a quick cultural insight.
Camille: Usually young people don't say Kinagagalak kong makilala ka, instead they may say "Nice to meet you" more often, since the English language is commonly used in Filipino conversations. Another way is to say Masaya akong makilala ka, where masaya means "happy."
