The 8th lesson contains the Filipino pronouns including the subject, object and possessive forms. In addition, you will find a vocabulary list about travel and finally some general common phrases. I will try to give examples using both vocabulary and grammar. That way it will be easy for you to see the words when they are separate and when they are in a sentence. Going through the whole page should take about 30 min. Make sure to read the pronunciation and hear the audio as well. If you have any question about this course, please email me directly at Filipino Classes.
Pronouns are a must to learn because they are part of almost every sentence. They make up about 20% of the daily language use which includes the subject, object and possessive pronoun. If there is an lesson you should NOT skip, this would be one of them.
We will start with the subject pronouns since it's the most used of the 4 forms that you might come across or use very often. The table contains 3 columns (English, Filipino, and Audio). Make sure you repeat each word after hearing it by either clicking on the audio button or by reading the pronunciation. That should help with memorization as well as improving your pronunciation.
|I love you||mahal kita: common; iniibig kita=formal|
|She is beautiful||maganda siya|
|They are dancing||nagsasayaw sila|
|We are happy||masaya kami|
Object pronouns are another important one you should make sure you master.
|Can you call us?||puwede mo ba kaming tawagan?|
|Give me your phone number||ibigay mo sa akin ang telepono mo|
|I can give you my email||puwede kong ibigay sa iyo ang email ko|
|Tell him to call me||sabihin mo sa kanyang tawagan ako|
Now we will discuss the possessive pronoun also called possessive determiners which is very straight forward and self explanatory. You use it when you want to express that something belongs to you but usually it comes before a noun.
|His email is...||...ang email niya|
|My phone number is...||...ang telepono ko|
|Our dream is to visit Spain||pangarap naming makapunta sa Espanya|
|Their country is beautiful||maganda ang kanilang bansa|

As for the possessive case of the pronoun, it is used differently because it does not have to come before a noun. Check out the examples!
|Is this pen yours?||sa iyo ba ang pen na ito?|
|The book is mine||sa akin ang libro|
|The shoes are hers||sa kanya ang sapatos|
|Victory is ours||sa atin ang tagumpay|
