I was wondering if you can speak/understand Tagalog?
If so, what helped you? Is the Rosetta Stone investment worth it?

omg no not at all.  my inlaws each speak a seperate dialect not tagalog but either way i dont know much at all and they never taught their kids to speak their language. unfortunately they refuse to teach my kids, too.  we just know food words and the kids know what pasalubong means.  good luck, ive never been very talented at languages.  my inlaws each speak a couple, and i find it very impressive!
