We may even take steps to ensure our own emotional and physical safety as well, by building walls around us to keep out unwanted interlopers.
Nevertheless, we are reminded that the biggest threats and the best cures come from within.
I can't believe that there's a web site for just about anything, even a Tagalog web site...
([email protected]) If anyone knows of a downloadable Tagalog/English word list I would appreciate letting me know.
I have a program to print paper flash cards and would use it as input. I am trying to determine the origin of the name of Subic Bay. Your web page has been very valuable in my goal to speak Tagalog fluently.
Madalas meron din tayong tumbas sa mga palabra na heyon, ngunit di tayo nag-aralan o educad, o lan-ito sa mga bagay- bagay payak at saligan sating wika. You see, much as I would like to see a common Philippine language, what passes for Pilipino now is (I hate to say it) really Tagalog. One comment that I would make as a recommendation is that much more use should be made of audio files. For example, the greetings section in the beginning tagalog lesson lists several greetings, the sound files are great, but I've no idea what I'm saying. I am a student of psychology and not of Filipino background.
Ang raan kaunlaran ng wika ay di lang nakagipit sa landas na makitid, kundi, ito'y kumakalat sa iba ibang lansangan na maigi sa mga gumagamit. Whenever a phrase, or sentence, or word is placed on your pages for tuition purposes, then an audio file giving the correct pronunciation, and a description of the word in english would improve the functionality and effectivness of your site as a tagalog training site. It has been a long time, since I played it, but I would like to find out if there is any written article showing how to play the filipino backyard games like Patintero, Tumbang Preso, Piko etc. Thank you for the site however - it's a great resource which I expect to be using a great deal over the next few months..... Thank you very much for creating this wonderful and very informative web site for our Kababayan here in America. Every page is full of resources and I don't know where to start. I invite you to check out my family website at where I have a large collection of photos of the Philippines and the largest collection of photos of Jeepneys. I grew up in a small southern town in rural Virginia and never had the opportunity to experience other cultures until I went away to college.
