Why is Tagalog (Filipino), the language of the Philippines, an important language to learn?
Have you dreamt of visiting the islands surrounding the Philippines, exploring the Banaue rice terraces, or seeing what all the commotion is about at the Mayon volcano? Learning how to speak Filipino-Tagalog will allow you to do all that and much more! This language is spoken in the Philippines, and it is one of the many Austronesian languages that are spoken there and in other parts of the world. At least fifty million people speak Filipino-Tagalog, although many of them speak it as a second language. While many of the locals in the Philippines speak English, they do love it when others learn their language. Filipino-Tagalog will seem to be slightly difficult to learn in the beginning, but in reality, it is so easy to learn! You will even learn how to read it easily, because all you need to do is sound out the words as you are reading them. There are no silent letters to deal with, so it is easier than some of the other languages that are out there for you to learn. Now, if you do not plan on visiting the Philippines any time soon, you should still learn how to speak this fabulous language. After all, you never know when you may see a Filipino who only speaks Filipino-Tagalog and they will be very appreciative that you can communicate with them!
