Great Method; Very Successful, January 4, 2009


By Arlene J. Stebbins (Seattle, WA USA)
This review is from: Learn Filipino, Book One, with Discs 1 and 2 (Paperback)
"I bought both this book and Book 2 to prepare for a trip to the Philippines. What great investment! I was looking for something that could give me a good foundation in grammar and good vocabulary for everyday family-type situations. These are the books. There were very helpful, as I was in rural Nueva Ecija, and many did not speak English. Everyone was surprised at how much I had learned without knowing anyone who speaks Tagalog. I made many friends in the Philippines with the help of these books. Many, many thanks to the author for his contribution to the success of my trip!!

I have studied other languages, using either conversational or grammar focuses. Both methods have their advantages and drawbacks, but the method used in this book is an excellent melding of the two methods so as to maximze the advantages of both. The books are accompanied by CDs and supported by an active website that reinforces the lessons and expands the cultural awareness. The exercises (with answers) were exactly to the point and helpful. I purchased a couple of other recommended books before this set, but they were not as effective. These are the ones that taught me what I needed to know. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone who has a desire to learn Tagalog, as I know they work."

By far the best, December 22, 2005


By A. Taylor (Atlanta, GA, USA)
This review is from: Learn Filipino, Book One, with Discs 1 and 2 (Paperback)
"I think I have tried virtually every book out there for learning Tagalog (Filipino), and unfortunately they were all pretty uniformly bad. Until I found this one. Romero provides clear explanations of critical grammar points that completely stymie other books. The explanations are clear; the vocabulary is relevant, and the lessons are easily digestible. If you're looking for a book on learning Tagalog, your search is over."

What's in Learn Filipino: Book Two


Learn then use compound and complex sentences like a native speaker.
Combine simple sentences into compound sentences.
Combine simple sentences into complex sentences:
- to say what you know or think
- to relate two events in time
(when, while, whenever, before, after)
- to say something happens "because . . ."
- to say "if" something happens
- to say something happens "so that . . ."

How can it help me?

Work with the book and sound files to learn to:
Improve your mastery of verb focus: actor, object and beneficiary focus
Feel at home in the use of ba, daw / raw, din / rin, ho / p, kas, kay, lamang / lang, man, muna, na, namn, ng, pa, pal, sana, tuly, yat. Omit these words, and your sentences would be missing that distinctly Filipino style. Use them, and native speakers will think you are one of them.
Learn five hundred new words, grouped by topic or situation. At the end of this book, you can expect to have a vocabulary of the 1000 most frequently-used words in the language.
