Did you know there are more than 100 dialects in the Philippines? In a country consisting of 7,107 islands, I guess this is no surprise.
The national language however is Filipino which is widely used in the capital Manila and some surrounding provinces. And thus makes most Filipinos especially those in the provinces to be at least bilingual. So do expect to hear new things when going around the country. A little tip, most Filipinos know either Filipino or English.
