I'd like to learn to speak Tagalog.
The best way to learn Tagalog is with Rosetta Stone Filipino. It's the most comprehensive program for learning Tagalog. The box contains CD-ROM software (Windows / Mac), a user's guide and a free headset microphone!
Rosetta Stone is a bit pricey, but once you're sure you're going go through all the levels, you may want to buy the comprehensive set (Filipino / Tagalog Levels 1, 2 & 3). You can save up to a hundred dollars that way.
If RS looks too big an investment, try Pimsleur Tagalog. It's an audio-only program that focuses on listening comprehension and speaking. No drills, no books.
Another highly rated course is Living World's Complete Tagalog Course for Beginners. It's a coursebook with six audio CDs.
