Kumusta po? I’m Teacher Erika, co-creator of Buksan Filipino Flashcards! I’m a preschool teacher with a degree in Family Life and Child Development from UP Diliman.
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 almost all the words and sentences for them. They were frustrated and they felt like giving up! I realized my students didn’t know basic Filipino.
"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.
We promise to continue our mission to help children learn and love Filipino!
Maraming salamat po,
"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 Buksan flashcards at four years 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."
