This course shows a formula on how to construct very simple and useful Tagalog sentences. It shows how 2-word sentences are made together with the tenses. Each video starts with the pronouns to memorize. Next is the prefix and when it should be used. Some sentences do have an active verb wherein the subject is the doer of the action. There is a specific prefix for that indicating the meaning of the verb. Some sentences are passive wherein the action is being done to the subject. Some verbs show the ability of the subject to do something. Each prefix conveys a meaning and some of the main verb and prefixes are the concepts one can learn in this course. Along with this is the verb conjugation according to the tenses. The rules are easy to follow. The learner should first know the verb usage in the sentence s/he wants to construct. There are many verbs in the Filipino language and there are many to memorize. If you know the formula, then you can use the verbs correctly in a sentence. The sentence starts with a verb then followed by a pronoun. That's how simple it is. The prefixes used in this course are "um" , "ma", and "mag" (used when the subject is the doer of the action), "in" (used when the action is done to the subject), and "maka" (used to show the ability of someone to do something).
