4.0 out of 5 stars Nice and Easy and Cheap!
Not only is this book a very useful phrase book, but the introduction consists of a brief history of the Philippines and a few facts about the country. This petit and concise phrase book offers a helpful pronunciation guide, which proves necessary as tagalog is initially very hard to read aside from working out how to pronounce the words! Of course the book doesn't offer...

3.0 out of 5 stars Basic but readable
This is a very readable book with lots of useful words & phases, but it is basic - really an introduction for the holiday maker. There are lots of words you might need that are not included & no CD, so you cannot hear the words pronounced.

But as a basic introduction to the language, it is okay.

This review is from: Tagalog (Filipino) Made Nice and Easy! (Languages Made Nice & Easy) (Paperback)
Not only is this book a very useful phrase book, but the introduction consists of a brief history of the Philippines and a few facts about the country. This petit and concise phrase book offers a helpful pronunciation guide, which proves necessary as tagalog is initially very hard to read aside from working out how to pronounce the words! Of course the book doesn't offer you enough to hold a proper conversation in Tagalog, however if you were in a really sticky situation you'd be able to get by with the phrases in the book.

I'm just back from travelling around the Philippines for the last month or so, and to be honest I didn't really have to use the phrase book as almost everyone out there speaks English anyway but I tried to speak in Tagalog whenever I could. They all appreciate the effort out there anyway. The only time I felt rather hopeless was when people started speaking in another dialect from Tagalog.

Brilliant for the price!

This review is from: Tagalog (Filipino) Made Nice and Easy! (Languages Made Nice & Easy) (Paperback)
A nice simple translation book of the most used every day words & phrases. The size of book is not to big or heavy to carry around with you.

This review is from: Tagalog (Filipino) Made Nice and Easy! (Languages Made Nice & Easy) (Paperback)
A great little easy to read book if you want to understand the basics when seeking advice. I want to learn responses to questions being asked of me and this does not really help. I would recommend you buy this book however it's learnt me basic words and I now want to go a step further and learn to respond with a few sentances.
