Do any members of this forum have tagalog speaking wives or gf's living here in Negros Oriental? Maybe she moved here with you or she was working here (as in my case) and you met her here. I'm wondering how long she has lived here and if she has learnt Bisaya well enough to talk conversationaly with locals? Or has she found tagalog talking friends? My observance over 10 years living here at social circles or get togethers for meals out with your wife....the invitees are decided by the host's wife and maybe expats with tagalog speaking wives will find they are not invited because the bisaya wives naturally prefer talking in their local language. I would add my lady has been here here one year and has learnt a lot of bisaya and can understand the locals talking but not good enough yet to talk it conversationaly.
