Pretty useful for grammar to supplement programs such as L-Lingo or Rosetta Stone; however, it lacks answer keys for all the exercises except for the final assessment.

required text for my semester of Tagalog 1. I got a B, and I remember nothing. Well I do remember my pinoy relatives questioning the book in a handful of sections. from what I know from studying foreign languages in school is you're not going to learn a language all that well from a book. travel and immerse yourself in the language
