pakiiwasto muli ang mga pangungusap ko

At the moment, I am just practising making basic sentences. These are just random sentences, I am practising sentence formation and word patterns. If you have any general advice on this, or what i can do better, please feel free!

papaano niya gawain yan? (how did he do that)

Hindi ko marinig kita (you were not heard by me)

Pwede ba ka pupunta kasama ako? (Could you come with me?)

Gutom ba ka? Gutom na gutom ako (Are you hungry? Yeah, really hungry!)

Gusto mo bang ng tuwalya? Medyo naman (Do you like Tuwalya? Yeah, it's ok...)

Saan siya ba pumunta? (Where did she go?)

Ikaw ay tapos na ba? (have you finished yet?)

    papaano niya gawain yan? (how did he do that)
    papaano niya ginawa 'yan?
    *gawain = work/task; ginawa = made

    Hindi ko marinig kita (you were not heard by me)
    Hindi kita marinig
    *kita is a dual pronoun for "ako-ikaw", so adding "ko" is absurd.

    Pwede ba ka pupunta kasama ako? (Could you come with me?)
    Pwede ka bang pumunta kasama ko?
    -OR SIMPLY-
    Pwede ka bang sumama sa akin?

    Gutom ba ka? Gutom na gutom ako (Are you hungry? Yeah, really hungry!)
    Gutom ka ba? Gutom na gutom ako
    -OR-
    Gutom ka ba? Gutom na gutom na ako
    *enclitic "na" adds urgency

    Gusto mo bang ng tuwalya? Medyo naman (Do you like Tuwalya? Yeah, it's ok...)
    Gusto mo ba ng tuwalya? Ok lang...
    * you only use linkers to link the word to the noun it modifies, ng isn't a noun.

    Saan siya ba pumunta? (Where did she go?)
    Saan ba siya pumunta?

    Ikaw ay tapos na ba? (have you finished yet?)
    Tapos ka na ba?
    -OR-
    Ikaw ba ay tapos na?

    Hope this helps. Good luck! :)
