One kanta nga Binisaya (Bisaya song) that is commonly sung by kids in school is Dinhi Malipayon, Didto Malipayon. You can watch a video here. It’s a fun song, the words are basic Cebuano, and its repetitive nature makes it easy to learn.
You can find the lyrics of the song below, and in the sections after that are quizzes that test your understanding of the words and what part of speech they belong to. The first quiz names the parts of speech in English, while the second quiz uses the Sinugboanong Binisaya parts of speech, namely, pungan, pulingalan, pungway, and pungwayon — a greater challenge!.
