In this island republic, the national languages or the two most common and widely spoken languages are Pilipino and English. The unique Pilipino language is derived from Tagalog but mixed with linguistic elements from other Philippine languages. Apart from Pilipino and English, there are about 80 other indigenous languages that are still being spoken. These would include Ilocano and Pangasinan which are spoken in Northern Luzon; Cebuano in Cebu; Bohol, Negros Oriental and a large number of Christian Mindanao in Lanao; Waray in Samar and Leyte; Manguindanao in Cotobato; and Tausug in Tawi-Tawi group and the Sulu. As for those who possess linguistic skills in Spanish, there is good news because this language is still being spoken by a small minority in the country.
