Product description...


This primer covers the basic requirement of the Tagalog language you need to know. From the alphabet, its pronunciation, ways of saying each word, conversational statements you need to get acquainted to, and bits of history. This book guides you on how each letter is said as the native speakers say it. And how a similar word refers to two different meanings, when to say and how to say them. Delve into the book the easy way. When you want to swim you get into the water. And practice often. When you want to learn a language, say it over and over again. Practice makes perfect. This book will teach you how on day one. “Maganda ka”—-you’re beautiful! “Guapo ka “—you’re handsome! “Salamat po”—–thank you very much! (with utmost respect) “Walang anuman”—-you’re welcome! Knowing these words and saying them often will endear you to the Tagalog speakers. Having this primer in your library on hand will help you speak Tagalog in ways you cannot imagine. Your dream of a lifetime is now in your fingertips.
