Learning Tagalog questions. - Hi. It's me Evan! I've put together some basics to help you ask some simple questions? My spelling is pretty good, but I might mispell a tagalog word every once in a while, but that is how you pronounce it probably. If this helps anyone I will post some different subjects like giving simple commands and extended greetings (not just saying kamusta ka and then mabuti). I can also give some good vocabulary to help you conversationally. You can e-mail me with questions and If I can answer them I would be happy to.
