Listen carefully and note that this is already a modern Tagalog conversation, thus, some English words are used as well.

During lunch break…

P: Ken, SALAMAT sa lunch, masarap yung mga pagkain na napili mo.

K: WALANG ANUMAN. Masaya ako at nakapaglunch tayo. Next time, ikaw naman ang taya ha?

P: Oo sige ba… O paano, alis na ako ha, PAALAM!

 

From this conversation, Ken and Paula had lunch together.

Paula ‘thanked’ Ken and told him that the food was great, Ken said “you’re welcome” to Paula and next time, she’ll be the one who’ll pay the bill. Paula agreed and said “goodbye” to Ken.

 

Okay beginners, are you catching up? Somehow you’ll get an idea about the conversation using the context clues. We’ll say it again, one at a time. You can repeat the words in every pause.

P: Ken, SALAMAT sa lunch, masarap yung mga pagkain na napili mo. (Ken, thanks for the lunch, the food that you picked was delicious) here, SALAMAT or THANK YOU was mentioned. “SALAMAT”

K: WALANG ANUMAN. Masaya ako at nakasama kita. Next time, ikaw naman ang taya okay? (You’re welcome, I’m happy that I’m with you, next time, you treat me too, okay?) here, WALANG ANUMAN or YOU’RE WELCOME was mentioned. “WALANG ANUMAN”

 

P: Oo sige ba… O paano, alis na ako ha, PAALAM! (Yes, Sure! I have to go now okay? Goodbye!) here, PAALAM or GOODBYE was mentioned. “PAALAM”
