How did Tagalog become a language in the Philippines?
Filipino is the official language of the Philippines at the moment. Tagalog is a dialect spoken in the Philippines' northernmost region, the island of Luzon. Tagalog, on the other hand, became the official language following Spanish colonialism because more people spoke it and more literature was published in the dialect. It was renamed to Filipino because Tagalog is highly restrictive in terms of grammar and vocabulary unlike Filipino that is more open and expansive.
What is the most valuable piece of advice you've been given about writing?
The best writing advice I ever received was to seek outside assistance and cooperate with others. There's no shame in enlisting the support of others — creatives, writers, or marketers - to help you bring the story that has been trapped in your head to life. Having a glimpse of the outside world and being a little removed from the realities of your work can sometimes aid writers in discovering something truly distinctive about their novel. You can engage with coaches, brand mentors, or writers to uncover your unique story or write something you've struggled to articulate. Even if you're not a writer, you can do it. Inspiration can come from anywhere, and collaborations can help us create work that is even better than we envisioned.
How would you describe good and effective communication?
Communication is a two-way process that necessitates the presence of a source, a message, and a recipient. To put it another way, someone is speaking and another is listening. Based on the message they relayed, there is an interaction between the two. Understanding instructions, learning new skills, making requests, asking questions, and transmitting information with ease are all part of good communication. Understanding requests, asking questions, and transmitting crucial information are all part of good communication.
