depends how much u wna learn? are you ever really going to be using the words day to day if youre not fluent? no not really. is there enough material to get past the basics on the net? i dont think so really. you dont really need it at all.
but learning a new language is always fun. it gets brownie points with women. if you got an hour or two spare a day where all youre going to be doing is watching youtube or w/e and you plan to be in this country for awhile. may aswell do something productive with that time and learning tagalog can be decent.
if youre only going to be here for a couple months then pretty much no point.
imo its only really worth it if you get a tutor who can slow conversational tagalog down for you to really understand it. if you try learn of the neT, use it in conversation, then youll really struggle to understand their reply if its in tagalog
