Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

andlt;bandgt;andlt;Iandgt;Basic Tagalogandlt;/Iandgt; takes a friendly and innovative approach, emphasizing the structure of the Tagalog language rather than just vocabulary.andlt;/bandgt;andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;This userand#8211;friendly beginner Tagalog book teaches more than 2,000 Tagalog words and expressions with over 500 being added for this new edition. These are spread throughout 44 lessons, the Appendices and the exercises as well as in the Tagalogand#8211;English and Englishand#8211;Tagalog vocabulary lists at back of the book. The added Tagalog vocabulary is meant to keep learners abreast of changes that have occurred in the language since the first edition of andlt;iandgt;Basic Tagalogandlt;/iandgt; which was published. This edition has retained all the grammar lessons and the triedand#8211;andand#8211;tested teaching methodology developed b the author, Paraluman S. Aspillera, for the original version. Her method has proven to be extremely effective for tens of thousands of foreigners and nonand#8211;Tagalogs who have used this book to lean to learn Tagalog, including many who have successfully learned to speak Tagalog, read Tagalog and write Tagalog through selfand#8211;study on their own without a teacher. An audio CD has also been added to facilitate the correct pronunciation of Tagalog words and phrases. A succinct introduction to the language and a description of the character of Filipinos will hopefully provide learners with a better understanding of the language they are learning.andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;The lessons in andlt;iandgt;Basic Tagalogandlt;/iandgt; are intended for a threeand#8211;month period of intensive study followed by another three months of applied oral communication. In six months (or about 250 hours), it is expected that an average learner should be able to speak, write and understand simple, everyday, conversational Tagalog as spoken by most Filipinos. Highlights of this book include:andlt;ulandgt;andlt;liandgt; Over 2,000 Tagalog words and expressions.andlt;/liandgt;andlt;liandgt; 44 lessons organized by organized for efficient language absorption.andlt;/liandgt;andlt;liandgt; Extensive exercises and activities to reinforce the lessons.andlt;/liandgt;andlt;liandgt; Vocabulary lists serve as comprehensive Englishand#8211;Tagalog and Tagalogand#8211;English dictionaries.andlt;/liandgt;andlt;liandgt; Completely updated and expanded with new materials.andlt;/liandgt;andlt;liandgt; Includes accompanying MP3 Audio CD.andlt;/liandgt;andlt;/ulandgt;Using andlt;iandgt;Basic Tagalogandlt;/iandgt; to study the Tagalog language will further encourage both nonand#8211;Tagalogs and nonand#8211;Filipinos to speak Tagalog better. Only then will they appreciate the individuality of the language that reflects the resilience and flexibility of Filipinos all around the world. In the end, such learning will improve daily interactions and communications between nonand#8211;Filipinos and Filipinosand#8212;whether in business, education, tourism, social or civic endeavors.
