Does anyone know any good free resources for starting to learn Tagalog?
My bf is Pinoy and I want to learn Tagalog so that I can talk and familiarize myself with his family, but I'm unsure where to start. Any websites or resources I can learn from? I'd prefer if its free since I'm a broke college student lol.
For grammar, I mainly use Tagalog Grammer-Lite from LanguageCrush (https://languagecrush.com/book/1/52/chapter) and FilipinoPod.101. Filipinopod.101 has 1-week trial. I like to watch 'English-Tagalog Translation' and 'Talk to me Tagalog' or 'Speak Tagalog with JC' on YouTube too. I definitely need more practice on speaking and listening too though. I use Glossika too but this may bit hard for the absolute beginner. Glossika has 1-week trial and also will have October challenge. If you are interested, entry deadline is 30th September(https://mailchi.mp/glossika/challenge). I'm also a broken student and have Filipino boyfriend. haha There are a lot of free and great resorces online! I hope you will enjoy learning Tagalog
--- Tagalog.com(THIS WEBSITE) has a lot of resources too! I use the dictionary function every day and watch YouTube with subtitles here too.
