INTRODUCTION
Jason: In each lesson of this 25 part series, you'll master a common question for Filipino learners, and then learn how to answer it like a native. You'll learn how these key phrases work by breaking them down into each component. Then through repetition and new vocabulary, you'll expand your understanding of the question, its answers, and any variations.

Hi Nicolas!


"NA" in Filipino can mean a number of things. It functions a an adverb. In this lesson, it will mostly mean "already". Here is an example.


Alas onse NA - It's 11 o'clock ALREADY/NOW

Hi Keron,


You're right that two, three, and nine are dalawa, tatlo, and siyam.

The difference here is that, when telling time, we use Filipinized Spanish numbers.


English - Filipino

1 o'clock - ala una

2 o'clock - alas dos

3 o'clock - alas tres

4 o'clock - alas kwatro

5 o'clock - alas singko

6 o'clock - alas sais

7 o'clock - alas siete

8 o'clock - alas ocho

9 o'clock - alas nuwebe

10 o'clock - alas diyes

11 o'clock - alas onse

12 o'clock - alas dose


Thanks for your question!

I'm a little confused, i thought two, three and nine were called dalawa, tatlo, and siyam...why are they different in the lesson, and what would the other ones be called like trying to say "it's 5 o'clock" or "it's 4 o'clock"
