CT Lesson 44 - How to say My Condolences in Tagalog

Lately we commemorate the people who died in 9/11 or the Twin tower tragedy that happened on 2001. It is that day when a passenger plane was hijacked and hit the first building of twin tower. Then few minutes later, another plane hit the second tower. Fire and smoke billow the area

and later came reports that people are jumping out the window. Lastly an hour passed when the twin tower fell, and down came 3,000 + casualties.

In connection with such a loss, let's start learning how to say 'My condolences'

   my + condolences
 (ako)  (nakikiramay)

Notice that the subject ako or my can be placed both before and after the verb condolence. But to add ako before the nakikiramay or condolence, we would add 'ay' in between to produce: ako ay nakikiramay.

If you have a loved one who was lost at the tragedy, we sympathize with you. Either it is conspiracy or terrorist attack, the damage was done, lives were lost. So today what we would want to do is appreciate our loved ones while they're still here. Join me as we discuss how to say I love you or I miss you at Lesson 4.
