2.0 out of 5 stars Teach yourself Tagalog 10 July 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I was disappointed with this as you need the text book in order to understand what is being spoken in a lot of the CD it is pointless selling this CD without the book

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly worth the price. 14 Mar 2013
By AK - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition with Audio/Video
The incorporation of the audio into the book makes this enhanced edition well worth the price. Not only is it more engaging, it's very portable. Though, I think the price is quite high for such a book, it's a new product type for the kindle and really allows you to have the "complete" product versus the ones that come with just the book only. Make sure your kindle supports audio, though. I have to us the book through my IPad because my kindle doesn't support audio.
4.0 out of 5 stars Good book but need the audio 5 Feb 2013
By Strychnos - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A good book with useful phrases to teach Filipino but it would be much more useful with the audio that should accompany it (I bought the Kindle version knowing the audio would not come with it).
4.0 out of 5 stars Learning Tool 9 Jan 2013
By JP - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As an American-Filipino studying tagalog to retain their filipino culture and hopefully pass it on, this book has become a great learning tool. The book is well organized and can be easily read. It does a good job of discussing sentence structure as well as different forms of verbs. It was helpful to have different exercises and the answers to those exercises at the end.

Caution: This book has exercises that require the CD (other than a person can still learn tagalog from the kindle version)
