Official Language in the Philippines
The original official language of the Philippines was Spanish for many centuries until the early half of the 20th century. Then, under US legislation English was introduced into schools and in 1935 English was added to the constitution alongside Spanish as a national language.

In 1937 steps were taken to develop a national language based on one of the existing native languages. Tagalog was chosen as the base language and, in 1973, the language christened Filipino, became the joint official language along with English.
Filipino is almost exclusively composed of Tagalog as spoken in the Manila region. Tagalog is spoken as a first language by nearly a third of the population of the Philippines and as a second language by the remainder.
Filipino is the official language of education but is considered less important than English in schools. As a result of most Filipinos, especially in urban areas, can speak a decent level of English. This fact is reassuring for ex-pats and definitely, helps foreigners settle into daily life.
Filipino is the major language for cinema and broadcast media, but print media relies more on English – The Philippines Official and Government documents are also in English. Visit here for your first Filipino lesson – Salamat ( thank you )
