Our Story

Kumusta po?

Hello! Kumusta po? Thank you for visiting our website! I’m Teacher Erika, co-creator of Buksan! I’m a preschool teacher with a degree in Family Life and Child Development from UP Diliman.

I noticed a big problem.

Back in 2017, I was tutoring students when I noticed a big problem. My students had a hard time reading and understanding Filipino. I had to translate most of the words and sentences for them. I saw that they were frustrated. They felt like giving up. I realized they didn’t know basic Filipino.

How can I help?

"How can I help them and other children?" I asked myself. My husband Teacher Sed and I teamed up to create Buksan! We made worksheets in 2018. These worksheets evolved into flashcards a year later. To our surprise, our flashcards received so much support from families all over the world! So many children were able to learn Filipino through our materials.

The next chapter.

We’re excited for the next chapter of Buksan! Now, we have new printable flashcards and workbooks! We promise to continue our mission to help children learn and love Filipino!

Maraming salamat po,

Teacher Erika



"Buksan has been a tremendous help to our homeschooling. I’ve been trying to incorporate Filipino to our curriculum but since we are lacking materials being we are currently in the US, their flashcards gave us a jumpstart. We based our Filipino learning on their flashcards alone and made some extensions out of it. My eldest started reading their flashcards at 4yrs old. We then moved to translation from English to Filipino to ‘pagbaybay’ then to writing. My daughter is already five and we are still using it. We will definitely take advantage of it with our youngest too.

Maraming salamat, Buksan! Mabuhay kayo!"

"My husband and I started using the flashcards on our daughter, Ellie, when she was less than one year old. Now at two years old, we‘re happy that she is able to enunciate words on fruits, vegetables, occupations, body parts, Filipino courtesy, and whatnot. Through constant practice and exposure to the language at home, she is able to recognize objects and say what these are.

We’re grateful that Buksan is part of her learning journey!"

"My daughter has been using the flashcards since she was between 4-6 months old. Living abroad it is important for us that she learns Tagalog, and the flashcards make it easy and fun. We love the variety of themes, making it easy for her to understand everyday objects and people. We could not recommend them enough!

When she is older we hope she can use the workbooks too."
