At last, a way to improve your Tagalog! Written by Joi Barrios as the continuation of her best-selling Tagalog for Beginners book, Intermediate Tagalog is the first intermediate-level book designed specifically for people who already speak or understand some basic Tagalog and now wish to achieve greater fluency in speaking, reading and writing standard Filipino—the national language of the Philippines. The carefully-constructed lessons in this book point out common grammatical errors that English speakers make when speaking Tagalog, and present "real-life" conversations demonstrating how the language is spoken in Manila today. Extensive cultural notes are provided, along with exercises and activities that introduce the use of the Tagalog language in a wide range of everyday situations. The 20 lessons give you all the basic skills needed to speak Tagalog fluently: paglalarawan (the ability to describe people, places and feelings); pagsasalaysay (the ability to tell a story—whether a news story, a folktale, or an anecdote); paglalahad (how to explain something—for example, a custom or tradition, or how to cook a dish); and pangangatuwiran (reasoning and abstract thinking). Each lesson is carefully structured in six key parts: A "real-life" dialogue providing valuable conversational skills. Avocabulary list to expand your familiarity with common, everyday Tagalog words and expressions. A grammar review section (for example, on the correct uses of affixes in various sentence constructions). Insightful cultural notes presenting aspects of the Philippines that may seem "odd" to outsiders, to explain how Filipino culture shapes the way people speak. A reading passage from a story or newspaper article, with comprehension questions. A writing exercise designed to teach a specific writing skill. Using Intermediate Tagalog, you'll be able to talk about yourself, your family and your daily experiences using grammatically correct sentences and a native-speaker level vocabulary.

Every year, millions of foreigners visit The Philippines. They go to the World War II battlefield of Corregidor, tour the presidential home Malacañang Palace, play golf, lounge on the white sand beaches, and . . . Some do things that don’t have chapters in the standard tourist phrasebooks and textbooks of the primary native language, Tagalog. Tagalog is spoken as a first language by millions of Filipinos in and around the nation’s capital of Manila, including Angeles and Subic Bay. In addition, Tagalog is spoken and understood to some extent throughout the rest of the country because it’s the language of school, TV, newspapers and movies. Tagalog Down & Dirty is your guide to the Tagalog you won’t learn in the other books. Sex, drugs, alcohol, insults, obscenities, dirty talk, curse words, slurs about your mind, body and sexual equipment, the supernatural, gambling, and “gay language”—which gay men use to hide their meaning from the general population. Best of all, words for lovers and would-be lovers. Tagalog Down & Dirty is arranged in chapters according to subject. Next is a chapter including a long list of gay language words. And finally is a list of all the standard Tagalog words arranged in alphabetical order – Tagalog to English – so it’s easy to look up Tagalog words you don’t know. Come to The Philippines prepared to recognize such basic insults as "Your mother is a ______," "You're _____" and "You have no _____ ." (Don't say themself yourself, though, unless you're prepared to defend yourself!) Discover the Tagalog words for parts of your body, at least the most interesting parts, and their functions. Learn the names of the many monsters and ghosts you must avoid at night. If you're a man who has sex with other men, discover how Filipino gays classify your sexuality. Because language is intimately tied to culture, you'll get an inside look at how different Filipinos value are from average Western countries. Call an American woman "ugly" and you'll probably get a lecture on how men objectify women and/or men should look for beautiful personalities. Call a Filipino woman "ugly" and look out! Tell an American they have no shame, and they probably won't even know what you're talking about. If you say it to a Filipino, you better run for your life. Describe an American woman as flirtatious and she'll take it as a compliment. Tell a Filipino woman that and, depending on circumstances, she may take it as an insult to her sexual morality. Whether you wish to learn more about The Philippines because you're chatting up some sweet young thing online and want to meet her in person, or you wish to check out the bar scene, or to swim and sun bathe at the white sand beaches, explore the jungles or oceans teeming with exotic wildlife, or to backpack in the mountains, or a linguist checking out the phenomenon of gay language, Tagalog Down & Dirty is where to start your adventure.

My First Book of Tagalog Words is a beautifully illustrated book that introduces young children to Filipino language and culture through everyday words. The words profiled in this book are all commonly used in the Filipino language and are both informative and fun for English-speaking children to learn. The goals of My First Book of Tagalog Words are multiple: to familiarize children with the sounds and structure of the Tagalog language; to introduce core elements of Filipino culture; to illustrate the ways in which languages differ in their treatment of everyday sounds; and to show how, through cultural importation, a single word can be shared between languages. Both teachers and parents will welcome the book's cultural references, and appreciate how the book is organized in a familiar ABC structure. With the help of this book, we hope more children (and adults) will soon be a part of the 22 million people worldwide that speak Tagalog!
