181 languages from the Philippines in use today, some of us here have enough trouble with one, it is OK that Sheriel can speak and understand good English, it must be very strange to marry someone who cannot understand each other, then Rani, perhaps if you didn't understand then how can one say no, if you no what we are talking about joking :do_it:

Fascinating stuff Rayna.

Our capital speaks more than 100 different languages and the statistics show that 300,000 can't speak english at all there, also only 72% speak english as their first language...:cwm24:

Makes me wonder the minefield we have bringing our loved ones here and what they have to prove to settle in this beloved country of ours mmm......:Erm:
