I wasn't aware that lots of people in the phillipines still spoke
Spanish. I know that there was a massive amount of borrowing into
Tagalog from Spanish (which incidentally is very confused for someone
who already speaks Spanish... I kept wanting to "adjust" the words to
proper Spanish pronounciation lol), but I was under the impression that
after the years of American occupation that English was the other major
language along with Tagalog now.
