Great Method; Very Successful, January 4, 2009

By Arlene J. Stebbins (Seattle, WA USA)
This review is from: Learn Filipino, Book One, with Discs 1 and 2 (Paperback)
"I bought both this book and Book 2 to prepare for a trip to the Philippines. What great investment! I was looking for something that could give me a good foundation in grammar and good vocabulary for everyday family-type situations. These are the books. There were very helpful, as I was in rural Nueva Ecija, and many did not speak English. Everyone was surprised at how much I had learned without knowing anyone who speaks Tagalog. I made many friends in the Philippines with the help of these books. Many, many thanks to the author for his contribution to the success of my trip!!

I have studied other languages, using either conversational or grammar focuses. Both methods have their advantages and drawbacks, but the method used in this book is an excellent melding of the two methods so as to maximze the advantages of both. The books are accompanied by CDs and supported by an active website that reinforces the lessons and expands the cultural awareness. The exercises (with answers) were exactly to the point and helpful. I purchased a couple of other recommended books before this set, but they were not as effective. These are the ones that taught me what I needed to know. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone who has a desire to learn Tagalog, as I know they work."
