It was an excellent source for me to use to write to my friend in a different country. It was a real surprise when I was writing in friends language. But they use seven different launage there, even if taglog is the native language. So I am still learning but it works and serves the purpose.
I need help! Well my bf happens to be filipino and i wanna get a tagalog dictionary that can teach me how to speak it.... i seriously want to learn tagalog myself in less than a year or so... PLS HELP ME!!!!
You can't just start pronouncing words the way they look. First, you have to study the single letter & letter combination pronounciations. And you have to remember them. It doesn't tell you how to put anything together - no grammar. This would be better for someone who is familiar with the language and while traveling needs a little help remembering. I wouldn't suggest you visit the Phillipines, with no knowledge of the language, and use this as your only reference.
I was very disappointed in this book. There are a lot of words that are used everyday but are not in this dictionary.
awesome pocket dictionary.
