    D. Used to be a C- when I lived there, but it's been too many years. Usually starts coming back a few days into a visit.

    Not really. I already was near native in French, fluent in Hindi, ok in Thai, with some Arabic. It's far too easy not to bother to learn Tagalog, as all the Flips I deal with workwise, or friends, speak fluent English. Those that don't - workmen, etc - the wife handles. I understand Tagalog pretty well, but rarely speak it. We speak English in the home, as the twins get enough Tagalog exposure elsewhere. Sometimes I really think I ought to pick up a book and get to it, and then sloth and lethargy win out.

    Absolutely ashamed considering the amount of time I have lived here.

    I suppose I can get by but not having the conviction to learn to read and write it I suppose I will never be a fluent speaker.

    But if you make a small effort it can really surprise them and they'll take you for an old hand even if you've only just got of the plane.

    I can just about remember a couple of handy phrases :

    " Halika dito magandang babae . Gusto kitang paka salam ! "

    That got them on my side
