Tagalog - language of the Philippines!
The Philippines has many languages and dialects. Tagalog is the language that is spoken by most Filipinos and the official Filipino language leans heavily onto Tagalog. Tagalog is spoken in the Metro Manila area. Therefore it the best language to learn even if you visit other parts of the Philippines than Manila.
Manila.PH will collect and list usefull words and phrases. The collection is based on our own experience as well as books, booklets and dictionaries and some are learned in Mabuhay Chat, where you can learn more and interact in conversation with Filipinos worldwide and train yourself in Tagalog.
The selection of words is based on conversational Tagalog. Words or phrases often used in conversation. This improves your understanding and orientation ability. Eventually we might group the words and add grammar etc.
