The Filipino (Tagalog) course is designed to give you a full immersion into the culture of the Filipinos. It covers not only the different aspects of the language but also the subtitles of how the language is used in a cultural context within the Philippines.
Tagalog is an Austronesian language spoken as a first language by a quarter of the population of the Philippines and as a second language by most of the rest. It is the first language of the Philippine region IV (CALABARZON and MIMAROPA), of Bulacan and of Metro Manila. Its standardized form, officially named Filipino, is the national language and one of two official languages of the Philippines, the other being English. It is related to other Philippine languages such as Ilokano, Bisayan, and Kapampangan. Tagalog is not a tonal language. The word Tagalog derived from tagailog, from taga- meaning "native of" and ?log meaning "river". Thus, it means "river dweller". Very little is known about the history of the language.
Tagalog is spoken in: Philippines
Tagalog has no known alternate names.
