Helpful

I completed each lesson twice (over two nights) before moving on. I must listen at 3/4 speed or the pauses aren't long enough for me to respond. Still, I sometimes still pause. I'm now going to go back through all the lessons at regular speed, both for review and, hopefully, to increase my response time. Then I will proceed to the next set of lessons. I have received many compliments from Filipina friends about my progress.

Very Helpful

I never learned Tagalog as a kid even though both my parents are from the Philippines, so I wanted to be able to learn it some day and here I am with Pimsleur. I'm only on chapter 6, but this audio has helped me a lot. I never thought of myself as an audio learner, yet I've learned sentence structure faster than reading in Tagalog.

Tagalog

use it ! it works! repeating chapters helps and using the option of slowing the dialogue down is recommended.

great way to learn

this made it easy for me to learn conversational tagalog. and always made sure to recap what you had already learned in previous chapters.
