Over ten million Filipinos speak Tagalog, the official language of the Philippines. This dictionary addresses the growing need for a concise, reliable, and inexpensive English–Tagalog dictionary. It is ideal for teachers, students, businesspeople, travelers, and others who are interested in studying Tagalog.

Pronunciation guidelines were determined by the Institute of National Language, which based its preference on standard Manila dialect.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Very concise and clearly written text, however, this is a one-way dictionary, meaning one can only use it for English-Tagalog, and not vice versa, which greatly limits its usefulness. I would honestly suggest another dictionary unless you only intend to use this to build your vocabulary.
