A Basic Tagalog course for Beginners

This audio language course is designed for people with no previous experience learning Tagalog or other Filipino language. Use the lessons on this site or subscribe to the No Borders Tagalog podcast on iTunes. If you'd like to begin now, please start by playing lesson 1 below. New learners should also get the PDF Study Guide, an essential part of the course.

In this lesson, we step into Tagalog grammar.  Tagalog grammar contains concepts we don't find in English.  One of these concepts is called focus markers.  Learn about assigning focus in Tagalog sentences with the focus markers ANG, NG and SA.
