The Philippines is recognized as one of the largest English – speaking nation. Filipino is the first language here in our country while English is the second language. There are 90 million Filipinos speaking in English. Only around 37,000 Filipinos speak it as a first language. However, a little over 92% of the population can speak it as a second language. It is the main language we used in commerce, law, as well as the primary medium of instruction in education. Despite the claim that the Philippines is the third largest country worldwide havinga great number of people who can speak English, it is only second to Malaysia inthe whole of Asia when it comes to proficiency in listening, speaking, writing, andconversing in English (Manila Mail, 2010)
