Hello! My name is despaing. I am from New Mexico, United States and I am a Beginner Filipino language student.
I am studying the Filipino language because my wife is a Filipina and I love the Philippines and the people there.
 
I have lived in the Philippines for 4 years ('90 to '94) and we are planning on retiring there in 2 to 5( or 6) years.
 
Therefore, I need to stop being a perpetual beginner (I've been one for almost 30 now) and learn how to speak Tagalog!

Hi. I'm glad you found this great site! I live in San Francisco, and I also have a Filipina wife. I find that having her tutor me in Tagalog does not work well, since we always revert back to English. I've heard similar things from other people studying other languages, where their progress when they relied on spouse for tutoring. You might want to get an online tutor. I use italki, but there are other services available. Good luck!
