    kinakausap ko sa tagalog pero bakit ako ini-english sa sagot ? is there a need?

    napansin ko sa iba nating kababayan na full blooded pinoys at born and raised in pinas.... kung bakit kapag kinakausap mo naman sa tagalog ay sinasagot ka sa english...

    ano kaya ang gusto nila ipahiwatig nito?

    at yung iba naman ay dinadag dagan pa "na" yung huli ng sentence nila such as " I went there "NA".... bakit kaya there is a need na inglisin pa nila ang kausap nila pag kinakausap naman sila sa tagalog.....

    just cuirous...


    cheers

    i live in canada and this happens a lot.

    alam naman natin ang hitsura at porma ng pinoy so kung alam kong pilipino ang kaharap ko,tagalog ang bati ko but mostly sasagot ng english.............utang ng loob pareho lang tayong pilipino kaya na tayong magbolahan ang madalas na nasa isip ko.

    minsan may na encounter pa ako sa work,"sorry if i dont answer you in tagalog bec im not used to it anymore" but listen to her talking sounds like her passports was stamped yesterday. ay ewan.....!

    and yet my kids who are talk,move and dress like any other canadian speak tagalog kahit tabi tabingi.

    I am like that.. Minsan mas comfortable pa mag salita ng English kesa Tagalog. Ang tagalog kasi ang hahaba ng mga salita, paulit-ulit pa. Kapag English minsan isang word lang ok na

    ^^ true.
    it is easier to express what you want to say in english at mahirap mag salita ng purong tagalog but if we are all pinoy gathering around, i find it awkward to keep talking in pure english.

    That's basically it. It's definitely not a need but it really happens. Kahit saken and kahit namn siguro kanino. This same topic has just recently been an issue on FIZZIT. Andaming nag-react as they felt like they were hit on the back of their heads :]

    Geez why is it a big deal kung english kang sagutin? Nagkakaintindihan naman kayo, right? What if naman kausapin ka ng english then tagalog ang sagot mo? Will that a big deal to the english speaker?

    Kung naiinis ka then inisin mo rin by using malalalim na tagalog. Be proud of your language. I think yung inis and intimidation is rooted to the notion na mas intelligent ang taong nagsasalita ng english over yung nagsasalita ng tagalog. I think it is more of a problem nung may perception ng ganun and I think ganun ka TS.

    Eh pa'no yung kaming dalawang Pinoy sa work. English kami mag-usap kahit kaming dalawa lang. Is that bad? Actually, English ko sya kausapin palagi sa trabaho pero pag nagkikita naman kami sa labas Tagalog. Parang me switch ba kung kailan pwede at kailan hindi...weird.

    hindi naman weird yan,kensamor.mas ok na yung English gamit nyo sa work para di naman naiilang mga co-workers nyo at isiping sila pinag uusapan nyo. i think,appropriate naman yang ginagawa nyo. kung nakita mo sa Eaton Centre,ok lang mag Tagalog doon,kahit mag Bisaya o Ilocano pa kayo.

    * Kapag nag-uusap kasi ang dalawang tao,kelangan din iconsider kung sino mga nasa paligid nyo. Madalas,pag nag-i-insist na mag English ang isang Pinoy during a conversation,dahil yun sa presence ng mga hindi Pinoy na pwedeng makarinig sa pinag-uusapan. Yung sinasabihang maarte,sya actually ang nagpapaka-polite sa ibang tao at hindi lang sarili nya iniisip nya,when he does that,kundi ang impression ng ibang tao sa mga Pinoy.

    eaton centre? aba partida

    kapag baligtad ang f at p ng kausap ko tinatagalog ko na lang minsan din ine-english ko pero dahil alam kong pinoy, pino-po ko... where's the bathroom po? hindi ko alam kasi kung rude na tagalugin sila, kinakarer ang english eh that happened in the airport. ayaw mag-tagalog ni manang. she has strong ilocano accent.
