philippine english (similar and related to american english) is any variety of english native to the philippines, including those used by the media and the vast majority of educated filipinos. english is taught in schools as one of the two official languages of the country, the other being filipino (tagalog). due to the highly multilingual nature of the philippines, code-switching such as taglish (tagalog-infused english) and bislish (english infused with any of the visayan languages) is prevalent across domains from casual settings to formal situations.
