Let's Learn Tagalog Kit is a complete language learning tool specially designed to introduce young children to the basic Tagalog sounds, words, and phrases in a fun and interactive way.

This kit is perfect for use in a classroom setting, for homeschooling, on vacation, or anywhere else that learning takes place. It is intended for learners who have little or no background in the Tagalog language. It contains:
  • 64 Tagalog flashcards
  • An audio CD with recordings of words, sentences and songs
  • A wall chart showing the main words and phrases at a glance
  • A 32-page Learning Guide for parents and teachers
The 64 words are organized into thematic categories, including:
  • My Family
  • Colors
  • Numbers
  • Animals
  • Food
  • My Body
  • Clothes
  • My Day
Each word is illustrated with a picture that serves as an effective visual aid to learning and remembering the word. The words often reflect cultural objects and can be studied in any order. Tagalog language learners may focus on one theme at a time or mix them up for greater variety. Simple example sentences are given for each word to show how they are used.

The audio CD gives native-speaker pronunciations for all the words and sentences and also contains songs which promote interactive language learning. Finally, the kit includes a wall chart featuring all the pictures and words, and some bonus words; a booklet explaining how to use the flashcards, and additional activities; an audio CD and a wall chart.
