I learned so much. Thank you. I love Bohol very much. This year I visited Bohol twice, before the earthquake. Before that I had visited Bohol about 5 times already. My first time to really eat in a fiesta was in Dauis in May of 1970. My friend Joe Torres brought me there. It was one of the best times of my life. Thank you for being so generous and hospitable. These days when I am in Bohol I stay at Matig-a Pension.

Boholano proverbs are insightful. I must admit that I'm falling in love with Bohol. I'm looking forward to my visit to Bohol in about a month. I will see my sister and her family there; and I might recite some of the proverbs written in this website. Thank you very much for your good work!

Being a part-time court interpreter stationed in Zurich, I cannot emphasize enough how helpful (and accurate) this website is. It is challenging to translate German-Visayan beyond the daily conversation level. Thank God I found this site! Good job!

I am American, of Scottish descent. I have made a friend in Cebu, who is from Tigabong, Surigao del Sur. I am only just beginning to learn some words of Visyan. This website is a Godsend. I see words now in context, and may be aided in my endeavor to learn. The fool has said in his heart, "There is no God." I want to call her "akong hinigugma babaye."
