Question: Anybody who wants to team up with me? Hello guys! I usually live in Manila but I am a foreigner. Learning Tagalog is a main goal for me. Currently, I can handle some simple conversations, and Filipinos (who are always so supportive) say I am doing well already. But I know I am not. I should study way more. There is way too much I can't understand yet and my grammar is so wrong. The problem is I am full of good-will but fail to commit to my self-study.
I am looking for somebody serious I can get along and with whom I share a common ground: similar level, needs, and difficulties, and with whom I can team up. Purpose: to stimulate one another, to keep up with small challenges (per day, weeks, months?), to motivate each other in our learning process.
You: fun but serious (no time-wasters šŸ˜Š) willing to learn with a buddy your target language

Everything you posted is exactly what Iā€™m going through. Hard to commit though as I get tired from work plus I have a 5-year old daughter.

Hi, I'm a beginner but I am willing to join you. You're a level above me so that would push me more.
Umuwi ako katapusan taon so I haven't got long left to learn

@Trippertapa / @Pasualbruce indeed!... I don't have a little girl to take care of, and I am currently home-based... but still, it's hard to commit. I teach French online during the day, correct my students' homework during my spare time, so at the end of the day I usually rather watch a movie, dance, or play music than study :/ So I thought having a teammate could help me and others as well. We could create a small group of very few people (1-5 ?) and challenge one another with very simple tasks like work for 5 minutes on 1 song then the next day share in Tagalog what we thought of that song in few simple lines, watch one specific Tagalog movies, children stories (great material even for adults!), write few lines about a specific theme proposed by one of the teammates, give a learn-your-vocabulary-challenge, make a small audio/video record of us speaking, or just share how bad we feel to have failed in keeping up with the challenge. And many more... You got it! the idea being to have fun learning together and keep the motivation up without feeling judged or like a loser because we would not be committed enough! I am open to brainstorm and suggestions from you guys!

@XandraV I'll be up for doing that, sounds good to me. Where are we going to make the group? Are you gonna wait for more people or you just want to crack on with it now?

@Pasualbruce you know ... I am not even sure I am an intermediate. I have been living for several years in the Philippines, so I eventually have my own way to communicate with locals, a bit of English here some Tagalog there and when it's not enough Bisaya comes up on the way. it's colorful for sure and in most cases enough to have meaningful conversations... nevertheless, I feel like a beginner forever, with a grammar knowledge near to zero...

@XandraV that's okay, we all start somewhere, the main thing is that you want to put a little more effort into it now. We can figure it out and whoever else wants to join.
I'm not interested in bisaya as I will be going back to Laguna. It sure sounds like you've had an interesting experience
