A Newfoundlander on a trip back home to the Philippines is giving locals a crash-course in Newfinese.

Ritche Perez, who has lived in St. John's for over three decades, said Monday that a visit to his mother's hometown of Dumalag inspired him to break out his camera and test residents on how well they could pronounce popular Newfoundland slang words.

Some words and phrases proved more challenging than others, but all in all, Perez said participants enjoyed rising to the challenge.

Take a look at how they did in the video above.
