Description

The story of Tagalog started when the beautiful islands of the Philippines were home to Indo-Malay and Chinese merchants, followed by seafaring Spanish explorers.

Today it is the language of the second largest cultural-linguistic group in the Philippines, and its now official language Filipino is based on Tagalog.

Did you know? The name Tagalog comes from the native term tagailog, meaning ‘people living near a/the river’.
