Come On, Let's Speak Tagalog! (MP3 Audio CD Included) (Book & CD) ò In am happy with this book I am poor at learning other languages However, the simple step by step it shows in grammar and linking words together has helped me to understand, and has given meconfidence to learn this language the only thing I could askis to increase the Vocabulary in the Glossary at the back of the book.
Before I got this textbook, I was trying to improve my tagalog only with online resources and I found I wasn t improving quick enough and I struggled to understand a lot of the grammar.
However this textbook functions as a good reference book for grammar Butimportantly, it s extremely useful when used in conjunction with the workbook you can buy as well because by using both books, you can test and improve your reading, listening and translation skills.
Some grammatical points could be explained better and there are a few mistakes in the answers for the workbooks and a few minor mistakes in the textbook generally However if you want to reach the next stage in your Tagalog, I d highly recommend this book as well as the workbook.
I would give the product 5 stars but it only gets 4 since you have to buy the workbook separately.
Very useful book, full of good and detailed explanations I would however recommend getting a good Tagalog English to accompany it.
the best one I have come across in twenty years of looking is by Carl R Galvez Rubino published by Hippocrene Expensive but well worth it.
