Elementary – Suntanned from the Beach

It’s not a Christmas episode, we know, but who wouldn’t want a lesson about the beach? Well, here it is! Mickey and Cris talk about getting a tan from the beach! And be careful how you pronounce that B word (unless you want to emulate our favorite VJ)! The lesson will also talk about focus […]


Elementary – Lilipat Migration

Saying goodbye is never easy, but remembering always softens the blow. In this new lesson from the Kspeak Crew, we talk something every Filipino can relate to – migration!

Elementary – Driving School

They say that if you can drive in the Philippines, you can drive anywhere. But this innate talent of driving has to come from somewhere right? Of course! And all roads lead back to driving school which is what Mickey and Cris will discuss in 2012’s first Kalyespeak episode. A: Marunong ka ba magmaneho? B: […]


Elementary – Gutom! Sisig!

After a long wait, we’re back with, yes, you guessed it, another food-related lesson! Cris, Jov, and Mickey tackle a classic Pampangueno dish: sisig – a staple for almost every Filipino who drinks beer or hangs out in a grill. It’s delicious. It’s succulent. It’s pig’s head. And it’s making us hungry. A: Gutom na […]


Pika-pika! – Bahala Na Si Batman

Caught in a pickle? Bite off more than you can chew? Crap hit the fan? Thinking of eating that balut? In love with Katy Perry but you’re not Russell Brand?

Pika-Pika – Anong Pangalan Mo?

We’ve all known each other for quite some time and fortunately we’ve all been courteous enough to introduce ourselves. But what if you encounter a stranger, a little lost kid, or a duwende perhaps? I’m sure they won’t be going all James Bond with their names. So in order to get the ball rolling in […]


Pika Pika! – Pahingi!
