Sometimes Schools in the philippines have rules to speak english if you are caught talking filipino language you will be reported to your teacher and sometime when we get shy when speaking english to my fellow school mates when there speaking filipino language.

Why filipinos speak english
1 every school has a rule to speak english.
2 sometimes when foreign ask a filipino in english and has friends with them they got shy thats why some filipino past it to other person.
3 some times speaking english can be fun in the philippines cause they usually make fun of it when someone got a wrong pronounciation.


By the way im filipino and still a student

Keep practicing and don't be shy. Every person makes mistakes except the ones that are not trying. Those are the one's that will be left behind in my opinion.

Just remember that if two or more filpinos are with one non-filipino, to try to use English and not Tagalog.

Filipinos are great and speaking English one-on-one with a foreigner. But they are also legendary for not using any English at all around the foreigner when in the company of other filipinos.

Hey kzagado - I'm an English speaking person who's been working and living in Cebu for 2 years and I really respect Filipino's speaking to me in English. They are trying their best and they speak far better English than I do Tagalog or Cebuano!

Just keep practicing ... it'll be worth it!
