Tagalog is a national language in the Philippines. All Filipinos who were born and raised in the Philippines are well versed in this Language. In fact, if you meet Filipinos all over the world, it’s great to communicate with them using their native tounge. In my class, you will explore Tagalog’s parts of speech, use them in sentences and paragraphs both writting and speaking exercises. You can practice with me using accurate tone and diction. Language is powerful and let’s make our world exciting, engaging and expanding!

Why TakeLessons?


Tagalog Lessons

Do you want to take Tagalog lessons with the perfect teacher near you? If yes, then you’ve come to the right place. Private (Filipino) Tagalog lessons and classes with a TakeLessons Certified™ teacher - whether in-home, studio, or online - accelerates your progress, increases enjoyment, and improves every student's chances of becoming a fluent user of the Tagalog language. Private tutoring makes learning easy, it's more affordable than you might think, and it's the most impactful way to improve your skills for beginner or advanced learners.

Our Tagalog tutors work with students of all ages: kids, teenagers, adults, and even seniors. They can teach you the origins of the Tagalog language, in addition to the vocabulary, the grammar, the punctuation, the consonants, the vowels, allophones, sentence structures, gender differences, accent reduction, and other technical aspects. Learn about and experience the physical, social, and emotional benefits of learning Tagalog.

Tagalog is classified as a Category 4 language (meaning it's one of the hardest languages to master for English speakers), and it takes up to 44 weeks, or 1100 hours, of deliberate practice to gain General Professional Fluency. A private tutor can help keep you focused, committed, and motivated, not to mention their ability to help you overcome any language hurdles you have trouble with.

Your tutor offers you expert language learning techniques and tips, and helps you develop good practice habits, so that you can maximize your learning experience, and achieve your goals faster.

Alternative Language Lesson Methods:
Tagalog Apps and Books

For independent language learners, downloading popular language apps - free and premium - or checking out Tagalog books from the library are excellent options. They cost less overall than private lessons, and allow you to learn at your own pace, on your own time, and the topics of your own choosing. The downside is that you don't have personal instruction for the times you need to overcome any challenging obstacles. Learning with a partner or a teacher gives you the personal interaction you need to verbally practice and attempt the language.

Philippines and Travel & Immersion

If you're considering study-abroad programs in the Philippines, work relocation, international business opportunities, or general travel as a means to learning Tagalog, immersing yourself and interacting with locals is a surefire way to accelerate your learning. Reading signs, menus, and local newspaper magazines while abroad could expose you to all kinds of spontaneous subjects. Conversing with or having to ask native speakers for directions or recommendations forces you to proactively apply your lessons. The downside is that many students, professionals, and travelers don't feel as confident in taking this approach. Not knowing the basics of the language could backfire on you, and lead to poor decision making. If you learn basic conversation and the most popular phrases for traveling, then you can combine this knowledge with immersion and return home a more fluent speaker.

Group Classes

Taking small group classes to learn a new language is another good way to acquire basic language skills, immediate feedback, and human interaction. It combines both passive and active learning. A professional instructor leading the class can keep the agenda tight and ensure each student gets the chance to participate, and get their questions answered. It can also be more affordable than private 1-on-1 lessons. Find local group Tagalog classes near you by doing a quick Google search, or better yet, sign up for TakeLessons Live, the new and affordable way to learn languages, and to learn how to play musical instruments in small groups of 5-8. You pay a flat monthly or annual fee, and get unlimited access to hundreds of classes online every month. Perfect for beginners.

At TakeLessons, we understand every student is different, and that the best way to learn any language is to try a combination of various learning techniques. Try all of the above, find out what works best for you, and then study hard and smart. It's only a matter of time before you achieve your goals.
