List of advice columns without the stuff around them (adverts etc) for use in readlang etc. Potentially good - colloquial Cebuano, similar themes, language.

Tambagi ko Noy Kulas
Talk to Papa Joe
Tambagi ko Noy Tikyo
Sugilanon
Kalingawan
Heartline
Vallena
Daclan
Basil
Tita Heart

Search for "site:www.sunstar.com.ph Tambagi ko Noy Kulas" on google gets hundreds of results, probably similar for all others - so I think I now have thousands of colloquial Cebuano articles around 4-600 words. Much better than the Bible which is very formal and old fashioned language.

28 minutes video Ra Sabah

Big grammar session on receiver focus sentences (previously done actor and object, so I can now compare and contrast - but I might still have location to come). I also added questions to the sentences - "Who" for receiver.

I think I'm finally edging towards a grammar breakthrough when I break things down during reading or writing, but a long way from automatic in listening, or speaking.

Cebuano

Nothing for SuperChallenge but translated an English advice column to Bisaya. Yet to be reviewed by a native speaker.

I may apply this to language learning - https://www.sjbaker.org/humor/cardboard_dog.html
"majority of the benefit is gained by the person doing the explaining (the Walkthrough-er) and little if any contribution comes from the person who is supposed to be listening (the Walkthrough-ee)." - I'll explain it to myself (mumble, email) as if I was talking to someone else - perhaps others so this already?

Probably not related - just fancied posting it to look at later... https://www.datapacrat.com/Opinion/Reci ... index.html
