My spoken language is English. My parents talk to me in Tagalog though so I understand that. I guess if I went to the Philippines for a bit I could start to speak that better or more fluently. How about everyone here, what was your first language?

I speak tagalog at home but our main dialect in the city is Chavacano. It sounds something like Spanish but a little slower. I can speak English too but not much. Only when needed hehe..

My mothertongue is Danish. I speak Danish to my family, my fiance and many of my friends. I have a couple of friends from other countries who don't speak Danish yet and we communicate in English instead. I speak a few other languages like German and Italian, but I don't use them in my daily life, and I don't know if I am still able to speak or write those languages. I tend to forget many of the words as I don't use them very often.

My native tongue is Hiligaynon, a dialect in the Philippines spoken in the Visayan region. I also speak Bisaya, and Tagalog and/or Filipino (Filipino, is supposedly the country's official language, but is predominantly based on Tagalog, a dialect spoken in the northern part of the country. And of course, I speak English.
