While Filipino (Tagalog) is the official language of the Philippines, Cebuano is the most widely used vernacular in the archipelago. Cebuano is the native language not only of Cebu island but most of the central and southern Philippines, excluding only Panay and western Negros, Samar and eastern Leyte and southwestern Mindanao.

Pronunciation of Cebuano is easier than English. For example, there are a lot of A sounds in English: dark, race, about, hall, cat, sat and boat. All six words include the letter A, but all six A's are pronounced differently. In Cebuano, there is only one pronunciation per vowel. A as in park, E as in get, I as in big, O as in dog and U as in put. There is even a tendency to simplify the pronunciation some more, so that e and i, are often interchanged.

Filipinos rarely point with their fingers. The lips are
pursed and then used as a pointer, or the eyes look in
the direction to be indicated.

The use of a finger upward and moved toward the person
calling is an insult in the East and is only used for
calling dogs. More correct, the hand is extended palm
down and the fingers are moved toward the palm.
Sometimes for emphasis the whole arm is raised to
shoulder height and brought toward the body. To get
attention hiss or for greater distance or urgency clap
the hands two or three times.

Filipinos rarely point with their fingers. The lips are
pursed and then used as a pointer, or the eyes look in
the direction to be indicated.

The use of a finger upward and moved toward the person
calling is an insult in the East and is only used for
calling dogs. More correct, the hand is extended palm
down and the fingers are moved toward the palm.
Sometimes for emphasis the whole arm is raised to
shoulder height and brought toward the body. To get
attention hiss or for greater distance or urgency clap
the hands two or three times.
