Bienvenidos na Bien Chabacano!

It's all about the Chabacano de Zamboanga. Bien Chabacano is the first and only blog designed for Chabacano language enthusiasts which discusses and analyzes Chabacano word origins, Chabacano grammar, and vocabulary, and so much more!

If you are seeking information on how certain Chabacano words came to be, please visit the ORIGINS of Common Chabacano Words section. If you are a linguist, you might be interested in my MUSINGS on the Chabacano language.

For people who want to learn or improve their Chabacano, I don't offer any well-structured lessons on how to speak Chabacano, but you could visit the GRAMMAR LESSONS for Speakers and Non Speakers of Chabacano and Chabacano MODISMOS (EXPRESSIONS) sections for this purpose. You could also check out the articles under the HOW TO SAY IT in Chabacano section which were written for people who speak Chabacano as a second language or a foreign language and young Chabacano speakers.

If you want to catch glimpses of written Chabacano and my commentaries on them, head on over to the CHABACANO IN ACTION section.

The Spanish language may have greatly influenced the Chabacano de Zamboanga, but did you know that there are other languages which also had a significant impact on Chabacano? Find out what the PORTUGUESE INFLUENCE and ILONGGO INFLUENCE are on the Chabacano de Zamboanga.
