    A very effective tool for learning to SPEAK Tagalog. As a foreigner to the Philippines who had to learn Tagalog as a second language, this book helped me the most. The lessons are simple, clear, and easy to apply in your everyday conversations. Make this the first book you buy, and it may be the last.
