Free book of 20 short stories in Tagalog being given away online!
 
I found a post about it on reddit, it looks like a giveaway from the publisher to get early reviews. It's one of those "Lingo Mastery" language readers you may have seen on Amazon.

I've used Lingomastery spanish stories before, and the one thing that infuriated me was it was all in present tense. I prefer Olly Richards (yes, the snake oil salesman guy), despite his weird demeanour his books are quite good.
 
This is super great though! I can't knock it until I try it, and I'm convinced graded readers are rocketfuel for learning! Good find, thanks for sharing!

This is great to have Readers like this. Tagalog is sorely lacking in this area. This company does these stories for a number of languages, so I always wonder how good the translation is. For example, I’ve seen this done before where the translator tries to stay so true to the source material, that the Tagalog is pretty awkward.
 
I wonder if a native speaker can give an opinion on these. I took a screenshot a couple days ago…

@jkos That's a shame. I wonder why this is almost always the case. Reason is probably cheaper and faster to just have a native correct a literal machine translation and move on to the next language.
