Filipino Language Instructor
Hi! My name is Dwaine Woolley and I am an Australian Actor, Singer, and Events host in the Philippines. During my time in the Philippines, I studied Bisaya everyday and eventually learned to speak 3 Filipino languages. Bisaya, Tagalog and Waray-waray. I have guested on multiple Television programs in the Philippines during my time here and have found success on social media platforms.
I have traveled to many provinces in the Philippines for Charity work and have spoken with thousands of Filipinos in Bisaya, Tagalog and Waray-waray. My goal is to use my experience and expertise to teach other foreigners that are interested in learning to speak Bisaya. I know the struggles of learning Bisaya from a native English speaker's perspective so I have designed this course in the best way possible for an English speaker to learn and understand the riles of speaking Bisaya.
I've paid for so many books and courses and tutors to learn Tagalog and even lived in the Philippines for 2 years, learning hundreds of words and phrases. And yet not until *just now* (upon seeing Dwaine's explanations in this intro course) did I finally get clarity on the grammar and kill the super frustrating chaos that has been clouding my mind this whole time. Total light bulb moment! I have no idea why there are so many tagalog teachers out there that don't at all mention (or perhaps take wayyyy too long to mention?) the fundamental concepts of the *familes* of words (e.g. "ang" family, "na" family, "sa" family, etc). This is the epiphany I've been looking for.
Very good! Thank you for this!
