In the Philippines the people speak english and besides that they have "Tagalog" their native language. But about 90% speaks english very well. Also it is very common to speak english in everyday life. Since I have been taught English from elementary on, my level was good.

Overall
I wish I had known...
Due to mistakes in my home country/university I had to deal with several problems on my own. Make sure your home university provides you with the right information. Besides that: "Don't leave your valuables unattended"

Final comments
Keep on smiling. Sometimes you might think something goes to slow (visa extention) But just keep cool and make contact with the employees at the Bureau of Immigration and Deportation. Don't get fooled by taxidrivers, who think you are a stupid tourist. Ask if they can start the metre (30 pesos - 2005).
