Though a bit difficult, I had fun learning Tagalog. It was important to me that I learned the diction right for your sake. For mine, I had the message of the songs explained to me so I could emote it properly. In the process, Ive learned all the nasty words and how to say Nakakaloka ! What Tagalog word did I have problems with? Tandaan that we replaced with maramdaman .
