Languages in the Philippines
There are two official languages of the Philippines, Tagalog and English. However, there is another language present in much of the Philippines called Visayan. Visayan is also know as Bisayan and Cebuano. There are likely differences between the three based on where you live but nothing that I can yet put my finger on. When I ask, I’m usually told they are the same language. I really doubt they are exactly the same because other say there are differences from town to town even in tagalog.
Municipalities and rural areas are made up of Barangay. These are like districts in most American cities. They are based on ancient tribal villages. These Barangays each have their own local government and a Barangay Captain.

I choose to live in the Philippines five years ago. After three years of living in the Philippines I’m very happy with my choice.
