The absolute best way to LEARN VOCABULARY ON YOUR OWN is through the use of flash cards that you make yourself.
1. Purchase a set of 3 x 5 index cards and cut them in half. (This makes them small enough to carry everywhere.)
2. Write the Tagalog word on the front and its English definition on the back.
3. Use the cards in both directions: first look at the Tagalog words and try to recall the English definition.
4. Then shuffle and look at the English definitions and attempt to remember the Tagalog words.
Flash cards offer many possibilities. Take advantage!
