Indonesian and Tagalog

Postby Markovitch » 2009-08-24, 7:24

Hi,

Since I'm planning to spend about one year in Taiwan from October onward, I'm considering going to Indonesia and Philippines during holidays. I'm wondering, though, whether I should go to Indonesia first and then a few months later to Philippines, or the other way around. Given that I'd like to learn as much Indonesian and Tagalog as I can, I'd like to know if learning one of these two languages first would help me to learn the other one. I read that they were related and that Indonesian was usually viewed as easier. Would an acquaintance with Indonesian help me get started with Tagalog?

Thanks a lot for your help!

Hi Markovitch!

Based on my experience with Philippines as an Indonesian, I could only recognize some words in Tagalog, but otherwise, I'm not sure if my knowledge of Indonesian would help me a lot.
Tagalog seems to have a more complicated grammar than Indonesian.

Indonesian is relatively easy to learn. That's true. How long are you going to be staying in the respective countries?

Hi Ostsee!

Many thanks for your answer. I'm considering getting started with Indonesian first in a few weeks. I shall probably study it for three or four months before going to Indonesia for short (around ten days) holidays. As far as Tagalog is concerned, I haven't made up my mind yet, because I haven't decided which language resource I would use.

I'll probably ask some questions here in a near future :)

It is true that Indonesian language is so much easier than most languages in the world :D . However Tagalog is not related in Indonesian language, however if you're still interested in going to Indonesia, you can learn Indonesian language online too at: http://indonesianlanguage.net
