Baybayin School survey – FREE gift

doctrina christiana baybayin tattoo
Over the past 5 years I’ve been meeting people at my events at festivals, learning institutions, museums and online and it became apparent that many people don’t how Baybayin works how relevant it is to rediscovering our pre-colonial past. I spend a lot of time explaining Baybayin and I feel its a subject people can be passionate about but need assistance.

I had plans of launching this mentoring program alongside with my documentary but I’ve decided to launch the program ahead.

The focus will be on the basics on how to write and read Baybayin. It will be for beginners who wish to learn the basics of the script.

If I just described you, and you would like private online mentoring from me, then this program is for you.


Before I launch, I want to know what YOU want and what are your problems in getting started with Baybayin so I can be certain to help you reach your goals.

To help me determine this, I need feedback from as many of you as possible. Even if you have no plans of joining my program, I would still appreciate the feedback. If I know what people struggle with, I can provide the best assistance.


To encourage feedback, I’m offering a soon to be released new ebook titled “Doctrina Christiana: Thoughts on Colonialism, Tattoos, & Baybayin” for FREE. It features a complete copy of the Doctrina Christiana and words from my Baybayin colleagues.

I’ll also give a 3 FREE early entries into the program to the people who provides the best feedback.

I’m launching this program soon, so I need your feedback withing 72 hours.

  1. sana po ma ipublish din po ito sa pilipinas. kasi only a handfull pilipino’s know’s baybayin, nag punta po ako sa isa sa pinaka malaking bookstore sa pinas, at nag tanong kung may baybayin book sila, wala po. pero mag tanong ka ng foriegn laguange na transcripted may ma bibili ka.

  2. Good Afternoon po!
    Last year I started to learn Baybayin, even though it was hard for me at first to learn how to read in Baybayin characters, I realized that it is important because it also helped me in knowing the pre- colonial history of Philippines. It was also last year that I learned that the Kapampangan dialect has also another form of Baybayin. Today, I want to go further into studying Baybayin, and I don’t want to be stuck up only in knowing the letters, but I want to fully understand how to read in baybayin characters.My problem in learning Baybayin is, I didn’t fully understand the CVC method of writing in Baybayin, and as I researched Baybayin in websites, some of these are useful in teaching people the baybayin writing but It became difficult for me to use the reference because some were not in order, meaning the websites are not focus in teaching the Baybayin writing, but instead are focus in showing people only the history and styles in baybayin as used in making tattoos. I want the Lessons in Baybayin to be complete and can help people in using Baybayin, as an overall experience in understanding not only the history of Philippines, but the step-by step process in reading and writing Baybayin, to be able to also write in Baybayin. This Baybayin School is really helpful for people, who also want to Learn Baybayin, like me, who want to start first with the letters, and syllabication of this writing. This website is really a great help to me also because I want to Start again at the beginning of the history of this writing, and I really want to learn to read in Baybayin. Thank you very much!

  5. Hi Christian – I really appreciate your efforts in spreading the pre-colonial culture of the Filipino. The only problem I have in learning baybayin is time. But that’s a personal problem. I’m a “show me” person and do better in learning something new a face to face or classroom situation. It’s more difficult to learn something online due to distractions in my surroundings. If there were more opportunities to meet up with a group, I think it would help with my particular learning needs.

    By the way, I’m one of the group admins for the Bay Area Tagalog Meetup Group on Facebook. I invite you to post any and all upcoming events on our page. Hope to meet and learn from you soon.

  6. I wanted also to establish a Baybayin school at this present time but Christian, the problem is this. How to reconcile baybayin to our present writing system. Yes to use baybayin is to preserve it and revive it but baybayin in its original form are just 17 letters while the modern Filipino alphabet is not even 26 letters but 28. What should we do? create new letters similar to baybayin? that would be arbitrary. But i do have solution… maybe you would be interested…

    • that is not true that we have only 17 letters, aside from the characters that translate to a, e-i and o-u the rest are with the sound a. but each character changes when you use “kudlit” or period below and above the characters. I think additional characters can be added based on the pictograph styling. Like “Ka” from the word “Katig” (canoe bamboo outrigger), E-I from “Ilog” (river), “Ba” from the word Babae (woman), the inverted heart shape is the breast of women (when the spanish saw the women they are topless). “La” from “Lalaki” not their… but the G-string they use to hide their… and so on.

  7. the problem i have with baybayin, is reading it, i know the basics on how to write it, using paul morrows resources, i just want to learn how to read baybayin so that i can share it with people who are interested in learning it and also to spread the learning about baybayin in our country

  8. this is cool especially for those who are studying literature or are very much interested. with all the korean, japanese, chinese tele-dramas coming in people, especially the youth are becoming more interested in their culture. all they know about philippine history are about the spanish era and edsa. an online school on baybayin is a great way to perk up their interest that there is more to filipino culture and that we too can stand out from not only among the Asian countries but the world…. 🙂 maganda ‘tong simula para sa pakikibaka para sa ating kilanlan…
