Kristine G.

A seasoned teacher who has over 10 years of in-person teaching experience, teaching children ranging from infants to pre k. I have my B.S. in Child Development and Family Studies and I am also a TESOL certified teacher. My Tagalog lessons are simple and filled with creative hands-on activities tailored for young learners. Lessons are themed each week as it makes learning more fun and meaningful to them. I create colorful picture flashcards for my lessons and send a printable version to students to captivate and stimulate their learning experience. Using flashcards is an effective way to introduce concepts that interest them like letters, colors, shapes, numbers, counting, body parts, toys, food and family, as they begin to develop their Tagalog vocabulary. It is a great memorization tool that can also be utilized to practice and review the weekly vocabulary words at home. I love to incorporate props, puppets, songs, music and movement to keep the learners engaged and to help them understand the lessons better. I strongly believe that children learn best through play so I will also incorporate interactive games and art into our lessons. Please note that the themed lessons may run longer than a week depending on the learners' level of understanding. During class, children will be encourage to actively participate in the discussion. Since this is a beginner class, children will not need to speak Tagalog throughout our learning time as I assume they speak little to no Tagalog. They are more than welcome to interact and communicate with me in English. I will teach them the words, phrases and simple sentences to help them gain confidence in speaking Tagalog. My goal is to make learning fun and instill a lifelong love of learning! Please note that children do not need to know Tagalog to enroll in the class. All children ages 2 to 5 are welcome to join!

Is Tagalog an easy language to learn?

Learning basic Tagalog isn’t too challenging as long as you work with a certified tutor who can help you learn the alphabet and proper pronunciation. However, Tagalog is much different than the English language, so it can take some time to learn the ins and outs. The easiest way to help you learn this language is by signing up for our Tagalog lessons for beginners so that you can build a strong foundation and grow your skills.

What is the best way to learn Tagalog?

The best way to learn Tagalog is to sign up for private lessons where you can work one-on-one with a private tutor. During private Tagalog lessons, your tutor will instruct you on the basics, such as the alphabet, pronunciation, and common phrases. As you get more comfortable with the language, your tutor will introduce more complex aspects to help you work toward fluency.

While free resources may be available, we offer affordable Tagalog lessons right here at TakeLessons. Our lessons are a great investment because you’ll receive the tools you need to become fluent in this language. On average, our lessons cost $41 for an hour-long session.
