Yellow! I was born and raised here in the Philippines. However, I was raised to speak mostly English. Now that I am in college and I get to meet more people I began to see I need to improve my Filipino. This especially became apparent when people started to call me "englishera "and started to say "nosebleed". It also became apparent when I couldn't understand or fully communicate with other Filipinos. So yes thank you for attending my ted talk hahhaa

Nice “TED Talk.” I am American and have only been to your country twice. One time I was at a Bo’s coffee at a shopping center in Binyan, and I saw this cook walking across the lawn speaking completely 100% American English, but he was Filipino. That was cool and I remember the friend I was with reminding me that the Philippines is not uniform in its people’s languages and backgrounds.
