What does this book promise? And how should I use it?
The book's goal is to get you interacting with locals. You should use this book as a reference and dip in and out and skip chapters as you need.
You’ll learn some Tagalog, you’ll learn some Taglish (Tagalog + English is a very common way of communicating, especially in Manila), you’ll learn some slang and you’ll learn how to make people feel at ease in Tagalog through basic conversations.
In this book, we focus on teaching what you need to know and removing the things you (a beginner) don’t need to know right now.
It’s a streamlined way of learning, a streamlined way of getting you to a point where you feel comfortable interacting with local speakers.
This and this alone is the humble goal of this book.
What does this book not promise?
You will not be fluent after reading and learning the material in this book. You will not speak perfect Tagalog. You will not be able to read a book in Tagalog or understand the TV news perfectly.
