If you plan on living in the Philippines, it is a good idea to learn some of the language where you will live. If you will be living in the Northern part of the country, on the island of Luzon, the language you need to learn how to speak is Tagalog (also called Filipino). Basically, Tagalog and Filipino are the same thing. There can be regional differences, and a few words from other Philippine Languages mixed in. Learning even a little bit of the language of your locale will help show some respect for the area and the customs of the people. In my experience, when you learn a bit of the language and use it when speaking with the local people. they will treat you better, in a more friendly way.
