Cebuano is a language spoken in the Philippines. Although it is spoken natively by more people than any other language in the Philippines, unfortunately it is not the National language. That is Tagalog due to the capital city being in the north of the Philippines. Cebuano is a distinctly different language to tagalog. There are similarities in both languages with a fair number of words having the same origins and the grammar appears to be similar however a native tagalog speaker will not understand a native Cebuano speaker.

Cebuano itself is really just another term for Bisaya or Visayan. Depending on the person you speak to they tend to give you a different name for the language as it has never really been standardized. There are different dialects of bisaya but this version is as close to a standard version available. It is based on the dialect spoken around the Island of Cebu and its main city also called Cebu.

The words you learn here will also allow you to understand people in Leyte, Bohol, Davao and many other places away from the north. Each area has its own specific dialect of bisaya such as waray-waray, hiligaynon and these languages have different pronunciations of many words but there is still a strong understanding.
