They can really speak fluently in English especially they can talk and have a conversation with foreign people. Filipino has really had knowledge in English language decades ago. Before when America came here they teach English subject in the school and teach every Filipino to speak English anytime. Especially inside the schoolroom. Every Filipino must learn and know how to speak English fluently when the time of America colonize the Philippines. And at this present and modern days even if we now a free country we develop and continue the English speaking anywhere. That is why Filipino is good at speaking the English language.

In the Philippines, most of the government documents are all executed in English and also all private company official language is English. Some Filipino usually speaks English than the Tagalog language. They think that speaking and understanding the English language is everywhere they can while speaking the Tagalog language can be used in the Philippines only.

They have a lot of favored when finding a job in English-speaking countries compare to Asian people. A lot of Filipino who work abroad now have more opportunity to work with other countries they want because of their experience of working abroad.
