6 Reasons to Learn Tagalog Now
It’s the Native Language
While it’s true that both Tagalog (also known as Filipino) and English are national languages of The Philippines, many Filipinos are not fluent in English. Also, most are more comfortable speaking Tagalog than English. And in many service related positions (taxi driver, delivery person, etc.) English is often barely spoken at all. This is where being able to speak Tagalog can make the difference between getting lost and getting home.
Filipinos will Appreciate Your Efforts
The Filipino people are among the kindest and friendliest people in the world. Even it they cannot speak your language they will often go out of their way to communicate with you in some form. However, if you can speak Tagalog, even if you are not fluent it will be greatly appreciated. And speaking Tagalog can open-up so many possibilities that otherwise wouldn’t exist.

You will Know How Someone Really Feels
A foreigner who can speak Tagalog isn’t only appreciated by Filipinos. It’s a great way to know how someone really feels about you. You will be in a better position to understand the message someone is trying to convey to you. And you will even be able to understand what is being said about you by others, who may not realize you can understand what they are saying to each other. Needless to say, there are many situations where this can be very helpful.
You Will fit in Better
With the Philippines being a country of such warm, friendly people, you will no doubt make friends here. And you will find it much easier to communicate with them if you speak Tagalog. This will be especially true if you are with a group of Filipino friends. As they often will be speaking Tagalog as a group. And speaking the language yourself will help you fit in better and become closer friends.
