Whenever and wherever you deal with Filipinos, you are likely to mention something about numbers and money.

If and when you come to the Philippines, you may find yourself counting money that you give to and get from Filipino vendors, who usually sell souvenirs from across the country’s 7,107 unique islands.

Outside of the Philippines, you may realize that you are working with or even hiring Filipinos for various jobs that would, of course, require payments to them.

Whatever is the case, it is very helpful to learn words and expressions about numbers and money in the Filipino or Tagalog language.

Learning these words would definitely cut down the language barrier between you and your Filipino friend or acquaintance.

Yes, many Filipinos can speak English so using English words and expressions for numbers and money would also be fine.

Just the same, you’ll never know when knowing Filipino phrases about numbers and money might come in handy.

So better learn these words and expressions while you can.

Good luck!

Note: To tell an amount, just mention the number and add the word “piso” that means Philippine peso in the Filipino or Tagalog language.
