In the Philippines, the language of instruction is in English when I was growing up. I think they are doing it now in Filipino and English. Most of the Filipino language is called Tagalog. I had to learn it when I went to the University of Santo Tomas in Manila. University of Santo Tomas is a very large Catholic University founded in 1611. It has a very huge library of books in Spanish. We were speaking Spanish for 300 years. When the Americans came after the Spanish American War in 1898, we all started speaking in our local dialect and English. The Spanish is almost 99% long gone. They still teach it in school but I remember the lessons with lots of conjugation (verbs). The Filipinos who can speak Tagalog only is a small minority. Most speaks at least a couple of dialects. In Ilongo, we count with uno, dos, tres, cuatro, cinco, seis, siete, ocho, nueve, diez. In Manila we count with isa, dalawa, tatlo, apat, lima, anim, pito, walo, siyam, sampu. Except when talking about time, Tagalog reverts back to the Spanish way of speaking numbers. I enjoy the culture portion of Rocket Spanish, so I thought I'll add more culture.
