Lesson Transcript

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 Gaige!


Thank you so much for that. I agree that figuring out whether to use mo or ka can be pretty tricky.

When using "ka" which is an equivalent of ikaw when used in the beginning of a sentence is actor focused. On the other hand, you use "mo" when the object is the focus.


For example:

Kumain ka - you eat with focus on you, who should be doing the action

Kainin mo - you eat (it) with focus on what is to be eaten.


Hope this helps but practice will definitely help you get the hang of it!


Salamat!

Hello! I have a question, though first I'll start with a statement. I'm utilizing your services (including the ones on Youtube) to try to learn this wonderful language! For me very much a challenge but I am enjoying it, especially with how you all have put things together. I'm learning it because of a wonderful lady I know (whom is Pilipina). Well, I came across the use of "mo" and "ka" in these studies. I could not figure out how to best determine when to use which though; and she told me I would need a professor for this as it was very complicated (which was a surprise to me to say the least, her English is incredible). So I ask, is there indeed a way to tell or is this something one must figure out through a lot of practice or? Any help would be much appreciated, thank you!
