Yes Filipinos also use Palenque, they use it in Manila.
In my place some old people use Mercado while some use Tiendahan from the word Tienda.

New Prospects for the Spanish Language - YouTube

Not the video I was gonna show you, but this one should get the job done. It's in Spanish but it has captions in English too. I think it would be great for the Filipinos to learn Spanish. However I heard that it would be hard since the Philippines since it's poor and so far from the rest of the Spanish speaking world and it doesn't have a lot of money or resources to fund these programs in the Philippines.

I also showed you a video about teachers learning Espanol through the Instituto de Cervantes. They are learning in order to teach Spanish to Secondary students. I know it won't be that easy to start again from scratch especially they would be needing materials and all. Let's just hope everything will turn out well because it will really be beneficial for Filipinos to be able to speak Spanish.
Madre Espana has offered scholarships to 4 top Universities in Spain so I hope many teachers took advantage if this opportunity.

Here's a video about teachers learning Spanish

I'd also add turkish has a greek sound to it.
Arabic sounds like Dutch and German with the Gutteral sounds

Romanian also sounds a little like the Turkmen language, as they are both Russian based.

I noticed in the movie TRUE LIES when Arnold Schwartzenegger speaks Arabic his Austrian accent seems to go well with it

I despise the Spanish language. It's so harsh and obnoxious. I couldn't care less about the ethnicity of those who speak the language.

Get over it. It's an opinion.
