Tagalog for me is a language that is easier to learn. I am not saying this because I can speak the language, but because I have observed how foreigners can easily learn and speak it. I presume that it's because Tagalog pronunciation is pretty straightforward. There is not that much complications when saying Tagalog words. Unlike other languages that have specific tones of speaking (like English, French, German ect.), how you spell tagalog words is how you say them as well. The only thing that you have to take note is the intonation. As for the spelling, just like I said, how you spell it is how you say it. As long as you're familiar enough with this language, it'll be a lot easier to master. Interesting, right? These things are some of the reasons why I love Tagalog, aside from the fact that I am a Filipino.
