Excellent for improving pronunciation and inflection

I’m a non-Filipino who married a Filipina over 30 years ago. I learned to understand Tagalog over the course of many years through observing/listening to conversations and even bought a couple Tagalog dictionaries and textbooks along the way; however, mastering Tagalog in a world where Taglish and text shorthand prevails is practically impossible.

I found Nemo Tagalog as I was looking for a translator app for my Apple Watch and decided to give it a try without much expectation for success. After using it, though, I have been able to vastly improve my diction through the use of the record/replay feature to compare my spoken pronunciation against the apps’s voice (I chose Alex). In fact, my Filipino colleagues are very impressed by the precise pronunciation and inflections of Alex’s voice, so I feel completely confident that I’m speaking correctly now.

Maraming salamat po, Nemo!

Super useful for learning the basics!

If you’re looking to expand your Tagalog vocabulary, this app is a must!

As a second generation Filipina who didn’t learn how to speak Tagalog as a child, this app is helping me so much in my language journey! The app is easy to use and it includes many words and phrases that I know I will need to use on an everyday basis. I haven’t even unlocked the entire app, but I feel like my Tagalog vocabulary has vastly expanded. The app is designed to slowly introduce new words/phrases as you cycle through a stack of words. This repetition is especially helpful for memorization and familiarity.

Best I’ve found

I’ve been visiting PH for a few years now after making friends with Filipino J1 students at work and this is the best app out there to help you quickly learn the basics. There’s enough free content to make sure you really want to learn and it’s cheap to unlock the full version.
I spend most of my time in the Visayas, but most people seem to appreciate my attempts to learn a Filipino language. I’d really love it if they’d build a bisayan version of this app.
