Any tips to learn/memorise Tagalog words?
Tagalog is the first language I am actually trying to learn but i'm not so sure how to remember anything and I'm having a bit of trouble. Because of this I am quite unmotivated and find it difficult to even start to learn.
I still no almost no words at this point and I have been trying to learn Tagalog on and off for months.
Does anyone have any tips? Should I keep words I learn in a book or something? Or should I just continue to use a variety of apps and websites?

@woong Try the Flashcards on this site. Start with the “Top 1,000 Tagalog Words”. Good luck.

Flash cards are key! This website has quite a few to start with.
Also, it is a LOT harder in the beginning, because all the words sound alike and everything is new and there’s not much you can compare new words to. But as your vocabulary gets bigger and you become more familiar with the language, it will become easier!

Pay a lot of attention to conjugation. New meanings(though related) are created through conjugations. Example: Kain
Kinain(ate), pinakain(fed), pagkain(food)

I am using the Rosetta Stone online course and bought the Essential Tagalog Grammar book by Fiona De Vos. The grammar book is a fantastic help! I am supplementing my learning with the flash cards in TagalogLessons which have been invaluable to me. I also have studied the TagalogLessons lessons which are great. I'm learning so much and started studying Tagalog in mid-May 2019. I'm really excited about the language and with the help of many sources am making tremendous strides in learning the language.
