Learn Ilonggo/Hiligaynon

A great tool for English speakers to learn the Ilonggo/Hiligaynon language.  

Hiligaynon, often referred to as Ilonggo, is concentrated in the provinces of Iloilo, N. Occidental and Capiz but is also spoken in the other provinces of the Panay Island group, including Antique, Aklan, Guimaras, and in many parts of Mindanao including Koronadal City, South Cotabato, Sultan Kudarat and parts of North Cotabato. Further, it is spoken as a second language by Karay-a speakers in Antique, Aklanon and Malaynon in Aklan, and Capiznon in Capiz.

Not compatible with IOS 11?

Why did I have to download and pay before I found this out?

Looks like it could be a good app but the audio does not work for me (due to IOS 11?) which is unfortunate because I really need to know the pronunciation! It is the only resource for the Ilonggo language that I have found so please fix this and then I will give you a better rating.

Quick Reference


Not to bad ! It helps with some quick references . Would like to see some type of expansion pack as with small talk. Overall , I give it 4 stars. Salamat .

Good for beginners


Good for beginners who want to know the basics, but not too useful for someone like me who's trying to become fluent for family
