Kapampangan for Beginners (6 Weeks) by Teacher Lue (Feb 13)


Kapampangan or Pampango, most known as “Amanung Sisuan” is the mother tongue of the province Pampanga. It is one of the eight major languages in the whole Philippine archipelago. “Kapampangan” was derived from the root word “Pampang” which means “riverbank”, a name given by the Spaniards when they discovered natives living in Pampanga. This is also the very reason why a lot of Kapampangan words were actually originated and borrowed from the Spanish Language, which actually makes the language more interesting. Learning the Kapampangan Language will give you significant insights on its rich and exceptional culture. The language exemplifies the strength and resilience of Kapampangan people most evident in how they survive different calamities such as the “lahar” during the Mount Pinatubo eruption. Studying the Kapampangan Language will introduce you to how Kapampangans transform such nightmares into opportunities for growth. These are only some of the reasons why Kapampangan Language is indeed worth learning!
