August in the Philippines means everyone is encouraged to speak in Filipino.
After all, it is ‘Buwan ng Wika’ (Month of National Language) which is actually the extended version of ‘Linggo ng Wika’.
This month-long celebration is usually observed in schools, as it is a joint effort between the Commission of the Filipino Language and Department of Education.
Nevertheless, celebrating the nationalistic event should not only be confined to schools as we can also apply to it our everyday lives.
KAMI saw that in Tommy Esguerra, whose latest Instagram post (as of writing) was of him speaking in Filipino.
Lest we forget, the ‘Pinoy Big Brother: 737’ runner-up was born and raised in California so that means he’s not good in speaking the language!
He shared three reasons why he loves the country, mostly in Filipino as he translated some in English to his foreigner followers, which you can watch below.
You have to give him props for his effort, as his Filipino sounds good! Even Leila Alcasid is impressed, as she commented on his post.
Tommy responded, which means that the Filipina-Australian beauty might take on the same challenge as well!
Were you impressed of Tommy speaking in Filipino? Let KAMI know what you think in the comments!
