Hi, I'm Nikka. I'm a Filipino native who works for a US-based company. If you are an English speaker who wants to learn the beautiful Tagalog language, I'm here to help! I aim to teach you conversational Tagalog that you actually will use every day when getting around the Philippines. I also aim to teach you about the differences in culture, pronunciation, and behavior, and what you could expect when speaking to/working with Filipinos. Expect an application-based, reality-focused experience with me!
It's not difficult. In fact, it is enjoyable since Tagalog words often sound like the thing it describes and there are certain quirks and word plays used. For example, did you know that the Tagalog word for love (mahal) is also the Tagalog word for expensive? So we can say "Mahal magmahal" which translates to "love is expensive"! Isn't it fun to say?
Basic conversational phrases can be learned easily in a few weeks.
