A note from author Phil Smithson:
I’ve lived in the Philippines for over 10 years and when I first arrived, I found it especially challenging to learn Tagalog the traditional way. Existing books were focused on classroom learning. The exercises were boring with examples that I had difficulty using in real life. So I began to learn from interacting with people instead, listening to what they said and copying them. Over 10 years, I built up a vast mental library of useful, reusable sentence constructions, common phrases and fun words that I learned would always bring out a smile in the person I was talking to. This book captures many of these key learnings.
