It is nice to hear those foreign nationals embracing the Filipino language and culture as much as they could. There are even foreigners who are more Filipino at heart than those Filipinos who choose to neglect our own language just after some time abroad.
We’ve already seen videos of other nationalities speaking fluently the national language of the Philippines – Tagalog. This time, another video goes viral showing a foreign taxi driver in Dubai who speaks Tagalog very fluently.
In the video, a man can be seen driving a taxi and her passenger, who is a Filipina, were both talking in Filipino language. It’s just so amazing that this foreign man knows how to speak Tagalog and also knows a lot about the Philippines.
Throughout the entire video, he only spoke in Tagalog which is really amazing for a foreigner. Nonetheless, the video has garnered the attention of a lot of netizens, most of them contemplating on how other Filipinos abroad tend to neglect their own national language.
“Mabuti pa ito taxi driver sa ibang bansa pero love nya ang lengwahe ng pinoy. Ang mga pilipino nag papanggap na foreigner.”
The Philippines speak a lot of languages. As they live and work abroad, they are obliged to speak in English to establish communication among their employers, thus resulting to Filipinos forgetting the importance of their own native language.
