    Tagalog is actually a dialect. It's a much more basic version of Filipino, which is the official language of the Philippines. Filipino has a lot more vocabulary and 'deep' words.

    **Exluding the writing of Japanese characters:

    Tagalog vs. Japanese --> Tagalog is easier

    Filipino vs. Japanese ---> Probably the same level of difficulty [I speak Tagalog and have a hard time with Filipino!]

    Overall, with speaking, grammar, writing, pronunciation, etc., Japanese would probably be the more difficult (the writing!!).

    Source(s): Lived in the Philippines and went to school there for four years. That's how I learned Tagalog. I'm still working on my Filipino.

    It's Tagalog since it's scripts are the same as english.
