What Is The Tagalog Language

Many people have never heard of the Tagalog language. Tagalog is an Austronesian language spoken by the Tagalog people, who represent a quarter of the population of the Philippines. While Filipino is the official language, Tagalog is also spoken as a second language in the Philippines by the rest of the population. Knowing the Tagalog language is an incredible business asset, is useful when working in the tourist industry, and can also help you learn other languages.

Due to the prevalence of fluent English speakers among Philippine natives, many English words have found their way to the Tagalog language. This makes learning Tagalog fairly straightforward for English and Spanish speakers.

The secret to having real-world conversations in Tagalog is to focus on learning the language, not just the words. Rosetta Stone encourages learning vocabulary and grammar in context rather than just memorization. The Dynamic Immersion® methodology is the backbone of the Rosetta Stone language-learning program and can help you learn Tagalog in no time.

If you have hesitated to learn a new language in the past due to the cost, time commitment, or belief that it’s more difficult to learn a language as an adult, it’s time to put those common misconceptions behind. Research shows that your ability to learn a language is really just a matter of practice, building confidence through speaking, and contextualizing your learning. This is exactly what Rosetta Stone aims to achieve, and how they do it, at a significant lower cost than classroom settings, and on your own time!

Once you have chosen to learn Tagalog and begin to pick up the basics, you’ll want to ensure you are developing accurate pronunciation. This is where Rosetta Stone helps you get the pronunciation right away with our TruAccent™ speech-recognition engine. This patented technology compares your voice to native speakers in real-time allowing you to get immediate feedback for the most accurate pronunciation. The adjustable feature also allows you to tweak your accent as needed. TruAccent is a powerful tool for you in learning to speak Tagalog, or any new language you desire.
