Basic tagalog words to learn when in the Philippines
Remember that most Filipinos can speak and understand English, but these basic tagalong words can come really handy when you’re in Manila or any part of the Archipelago. ( Mabuhay!)

This is just a handful,but I am sure you can survive Manila when armed with these basic, everyday-spoken tagalong words. Of course, there’s the more complete English-tagalog dictionary where you can learn more words, even phrases and/or sentences. (Can be found in any of the national bookstore branches or powerbooks stores in the Metropolis)
Its fun to speak tagalong and almost all Filipinos love to hear foreigners speaking our language!
Goodluck on your study!
