I received this book last week and I have done one lesson a day. So far I've only reached the first Milestone which is after lesson 5 and I can already say I've learned a lot. I've been able to have small conversations in complete Tagalog with my Filipino friends.

Book:
The book is pretty easy to follow and the lessons progress in a logical manner. If you're serious about wanting to learn to speak Filipino/Tagalog, like I am, then I suggest taking notes and going lesson by lesson as most sections require knowledge of the preceding section in order to continue. So far this book has been very accurate to Tagalog AS IT IS SPOKEN by Filipinos according to my Filipino friends, unlike many other books that I have seen and/or tried. There are several mistakes in the book, however. Certain answer sections do not match up with the exercises in that section... they may be for the next section. You just have to make that extra little effort to figure out where certain things go. Another thing is that certain words or phrases will be introduced in early examples before you actually learn them. This may be confusing, but you don't necessarily need to translate it at that moment in order to understand the example.

CDs:
A lot of the complaints about this product is regarding the accompanying CDs. A very important note is that you NEED to have the book for the CDs to make sense. I ripped all the tracks from the CDs to my laptop. One regrettable thing about the book is that it does not list CD track numbers for sections that have an accompanying audio track. This is not a major issue as the beginning of each track TELLS you which section number that track is for. So as one track finishes I just continue to the next track which will say it is for lesson "X" so I just continue in the book with the mental note that lesson "X" is when I should play the next track. You can always just edit in your iTunes so that each track has the lesson and section number, or just keep the track sheet that comes with the book handy.

So far all is well. Maybe my review is a bit premature since I'm only on lesson 6, but so far it's been great and I feel that my growth in the language has progressed at a great rate. My Filipino friends agree.

Suggestions for any buyers:
I strongly suggest you take notes as you go, write down as much as possible, and do EVERY exercise.
I also strongly recommend that you have a few Filipino friends to speak to so they can help you with what you're learning. I believe this is VERY important.
You should also register your book and you will receive some additional materials online!

So I bought this book 5 years ago. I skimmed through it but didn't really study it in-depth until just last month. It's a pretty good book for learning tagalog. I just finished the last lesson (actually studying my way through each lesson). I learned a lot and I'd give it 4 stars but the only reason it's two stars is because it didn't come with the discs that it's supposed to have. (I didn't even know it had discs until I looked it up on the website). Apparently if you email the contact on the website, you can get the link to the sound files or have the discs sent to you... but I emailed them stating my problem and gave my amazon order number from amazon almost a month ago, and to this day I still have heard no response back. Even after sending a second email after the 3rd week. I can see this book is a good one but it's severely handicapped without the CD's.

This is a good instructional book. It really does break it down well and help with the enunciation. By the time I got to page 10 it started to get difficult. I really have to keep going back and repeating the things I learned in order to retain them. But my boyfriend, who is Phillipino was impressed with what I learned and said I am speaking it more correctly than he does. I'm only able to greet and say pleasantries so far but hopefully I can get better if I stick to it. Overall, the best I have seen out there.

The book is very good. I am slowly working my way thru it. I also use an excellent dictionary as a supplement to the book. The CD is okay. It is fast, but using it together with the book it is easy to follow along. I am not sure about CD #3 & 4 as they must be downloaded from the web and I've not done that yet. I am a beginner and have tried other books, but this one is clearly the best one. I also use flascards and have a digital voice recorder that I use to help with conversation, words and phrases as well. If you want to understand the language, this workbook is good.

The book was very easy to read but the first thing I wanted was the CDs !! -- and it was NOT included. That was the main reason I purchased the item.

I have visited the Philippines many times and love it dearly; plan to retire there. Received Learn Filipino book and CDs and, like others, I found the CDs cracked. Received replacement book and good CDs next day (thank you Amazon). This is not Amazon's fault, this is poor packaging by the publisher or distributor.
I think the book is good but, like others, I am a little disappointed with the CDs. I wish there was much more work on correct pronunciation which is key to communicating effectively. For me, this is the most difficult part of learning Tagalog because the stresses and accents of most of the words are so different from English. Say it wrong and it has a completely different meaning - or none at all. I also think the guitar piece that precedes every single aralin should be limited to once per CD.

Pros - This book is an excellent learning tool, it will have you understanding from the first chapter.

Cons - Some of the chapters do vault ahead quickly, introducing new material quite fast.

Overall, I am very satisfied.
I purchased this book and audio set a few months ago. I was soo excited to get it. So far I am half way through. Its very helpful to have someone who speaks to Tagalog to help you along the way.

Only complaint is: on the audio the speaker says the sentences too fast and you don't get enough time to repeat it out loud. It helped that I loaded the audio cd in my iPod. So I can pause whenever I need to and easily go back.

Overall, I am very happy with this purchase!!!
