Good Afternoon in Tagalog

The phrase “good afternoon” (or “magandang hapon” in Tagalog) is a greeting that we say to someone that we meet in the afternoon.

We also use this phrase as a greeting when we answer or make a call to someone.

How do you say “good afternoon” in Tagalog?

This question is usually asked by someone who is either learning Tagalog or is going to visit the Philippines and wants to learn some basic Tagalog greetings. As we all know, the phrase “good afternoon” is a greeting or polite greeting to someone in the afternoon.

Let’s go back to the question: When you say “good afternoon,” in Tagalog you say “magandang hapon.” The word “magandang” is also used when you greet in the morning and evening. You just change morning into Umaga and evening into Gabi. It goes like this:

  • Good morningMagandang Umaga
  • Good afternoonMagandang hapon
  • Good eveningMagandang gabi

For example, when you meet someone you know in the street, in a place, etc., in Tagalog we say, “Magandang hapon,” and if the person we greet is older than us, we say, “Magandang hapon po.” The word “po” is a sign of respect and is used by Filipinos to show respect to the elders.

For less confusion, if you know the meaning of maganda, you might get confuse as it means beautiful in English. So here’s an enlightening.

The word “good” in Tagalog is mabuti, and “afternoon” is hapon. But we can’t say “mabuting hapon” when we greet people in the afternoon. It’s just unappropriate.
