Cultural Insight
John: Now it's time for a quick cultural insight.
Camille: Just like in English, you could always answer yes or no questions in Filipino, just by saying “yes” or “no” as you learned in this lesson. But keep in mind that there are two ways of saying "no": hindi and wala and two ways of saying "yes": oo and meron.
