Here is a question, why learn Tagalog? I mean pretty much every Filipino I have met, in the PI or abroad, speaks English.

Just as a way to relate more to their culture or build rapport?

My cousin was a Mormon missionary to the PI several years ago and went to Tagalog language school prior to going there - but said most all conversations were in English. He just got some bonus points, win their hearts and minds so to speak, when used some Tagalog in greetings or small talk.
