Foreign Language Learning Thru A Translation Service

When we travel to other countries, they call us foreigners.  And most of us foreigners don’t speak other languages.  Traveling is sometimes difficult if we don’t understand what other people are saying.

I am from the Philippines and my husband is a foreigner.  He’s a US citizen.  The first time I met him was in an online dating site.  What caught my attention was the tag line on his profile saying “I want to meet someone who can teach me how to speak Tagalog.”  I was like, “I can do that.”  So I sent him a greeting thru private message and introduced myself.  The rest was history.  We became friends, got engaged, and now married.

I am teaching him some Tagalog (Filipino) words but, honestly, I am not a good teacher.  And he is not a good student either.  I mean, he pays attention but he forgets.  The best solution now is to get a translation service to make this language teaching easier.  Hubby thinks it’s a good idea.

Hopefully we’ll be able to get this service and my dear husband will be successful in learning the language.  So whenever we go home in the Philippines for vacation, he can join me and my family’s conversation very easily.

  4. I can totally relate on you, I think we are so lucky that we can speak English even though it is not our first language. Americans think we are so smart coz we know more than one language.
