Linguistic Approach in Life

      He is bestowed with at least nine varied languages. He is a humble father of one and a devout husband of a modest and beautiful Victoria. He is one of those living pilgrims who stands firmly in his life’s principle “less for self, more for others and enough for all.” In this huge spherical Earth, this marvelous creature who has dealt with life’s precious opportunities and challenges is, in certain phrase, an excellent yet down-to-earth wonder of languages.

         A native of Isabella, Negros Occidental, Generoso Opulencia, 71, is a son of an amateur boxer. His brave father died when he was still three. Two years after the death of his father, his mother remarried and from then on, he lived with his grandparents. He lived obediently and pursued his elementary education. He transferred residence in South Cotabato and enrolled at Notre Dame of Marbell (Boys Department) for his secondary studies. When he graduated from high school, the Marist Brothers brought him in Our Lady of the Trappist Monastery in Japan. He was molded by religious persons in Japan for four years and had burned the bridged to go to Sacramento, California to finish college while supporting himself in his studies. He obtained a degree in teaching foreign languages like Japanese, Russian and other languages. He worked in Bacolod for three productive years. He got a PhD in teaching literature in Siliman University. After many years of studying and working, Generoso went back to South Cotabato and met Victoria whom he gave his vow and promise for a lifetime unity. The couple has been blessed with a son named Peter Michael after three years. Currently, Peter is now managing a large oil company in Cebu.

        There is no other fruitful outcome of becoming a lowly human but a tree of bountiful blessings from Above. The linguist Mr. Generoso truly serves as a wealthy model of humility.
