In Tagalog: Maligayang Pasko!

Comments Off on In Tagalog: Maligayang Pasko!


Merry Christmas!


It’s the most wonderful time of the year. While you’re here in the Philippines, learn this holiday greeting in Tagalog.




Say it correctly:

maligayang – (mah-li-ga-young) with intonation on the third syllable

pasko – (pass-koh) with intonation on the first syllable


Reminder: In Tagalog/Filipino language, vowels are always pronounced in their short form. For example, short “a” like in bat, cat, mat. Not long “a” like in Kate, rate, hate.
