4.0 out of 5 stars Fine introduction for beginners, 24 Nov 2006
This review is from: Tagalog Double CD (Teach Yourself Languages) (Audio CD)
I have recently started using this book, together with the optional audio CDs. So far I have found it well structured, accurate (tested against my Filipino friends) and relevant. As a complete beginner I think it is fine and I don't think it pretends to be anything other than for beginners. I find the presentation and layout of the book a bit dull - but I guess a more glossy presentation would simply make it more expensive. The audio CDs are OK, but I would have preferred more of the sections of each lesson to be covered. Compared to the apparently much praised "Basic Tagalog" by P.S. Aspillera (which I also have), I find this course more digestible and less old fashioned though I believe "Basic Tagalog" is currently being revised.
