(Re)Learning

Tagalog

2019-2020

Tagalog is the native language in my province of Nueva Ecija. Since coming here in the U.S. 10 years ago, I've slowly forgotten some words and this project is an attempt to re-learn words I've forgotten while going through the basics in order to educate other Tagalog learners.

Background

Munting Itlog, which translates to "little egg" in Tagalog, is a project for people to “discover, explore, and learn tagalog through art and typography” with the mission to “make learning more fun and to reconnect with our language through playful visuals”.

A person who does not love his own language is worse than beast and foul-smelling fish.
