Part of Tuttle Publishing's Essential Phrasebooks Series, Essential Tagalog is a great first introduction and phrasebook for the language of the Philippines. Perfect for business people or tourist traveling to the the Philippines or for students who want to supplement their learning (and get an A in Tagalog!), this book's easy indexing feature allows it to act as an Tagalog phrasebook or as a Tagalog to English Dictionary / English to Tagalog Dictionary. A clever "point to" feature allows you to simply point to a phrase translated in Tagalog without the need to say a single word. You will soon find yourself turning to Essential Tagalog again and again when visiting the Philippines and working or interacting with Filipinos

In this book you will find:
  • Over 1500 practical sentences for everyday use.
  • A glossary of over 200 terms and expressions.
