Preserving and Promoting Non-Tagalog Philippine Languages

PINOY!

What languages do you speak?
Cuales son las lenguas que hablas?

You can also tell us what your first language is.

What's the difference between dialects and languages. I thought Cebuano is a dialect and English is a language.

English is the language, Aussie/British/American are its dialects.

Tagalog is the language, Taal/Bulakenyo/Manila are its dialects.

Cebuano is the language, Boholano/Surigaonon/Mindanao Visayan are its dialects.

but of course, they're teaching us in schools that all Philippine languages (Cebuano, Ilocano, etc) are Dialects and TAGALOG (Filipino) is the language.. Because Tagalog is taking the national language role.

But Ilocano and Tagalog, Cebuano and Pampango are very different, that a speaker of one wont be able to speak/understand the other.. therefore they are Languages on their own. A Bulakenyo would understand a Batanguenyo (the same way an American could understand/talk to British) but there are differences, SLIGHT differences. (slang, accent, etc) we call them dialects/variants.

Tagalog, English and a foreign language: French. Though I find it really interesting that we still have very lively dialects across the country.

My first dialect was Ilonggo ( Malaybalay ).
Then I learned Tagalog after spending one summer in Singgalong, Manila.
I learned Visaya in Davao.
