most of them di na marunong magtagalog lalo na kung nagmigrate nang bata pa. pero ung iba english ng english kahit marunong magtagalog, meron ding iba pilit magtagalog dahil di sila naturuan. may iba kahit sa ibang bansa n pinanganak ang galing nila magtagalog or magsalita nga kanilang dialect. Dito pa lang yan sa New Zealand and I've been living here for years and I'm really proud to be a Filipino we're not a major community here and I want to share my Filipino traditions wherever I go.(how much more sa mga bansang mas onti ang pinoy? Eh di puro english or anung language na lang ang sinasalita nila. )

I moved to New Zealand in 2006 when I was 10, and I can still speak Tagalog, though I choose not to right now because you guys might laugh at my grammar.

Sure, we try to fit in, because that's what's REQUIRED for us. You can't expect us to still know Tagalog perfectly, because that's just not possible. And I cannot stress on this enough -- for those Filipinos who's never lived in a Western country, you don't know how it's like to live everyday with people who speak English and no Tagalog... at all. How in the world do you expect us to retain our Tagalog, huh? Especially if we left Philippines in a very early age, which might be my case. But I can say that I'm still quite fluent in Tagalog, and I try to speak it every chance I get.

We might try to fit in, but know that it's only because we're supposed to. We moved to another country -- what do you expect us to do? Speak Tagalog, not learn English, keep doing what we did in the Philippines, and try not to learn any of their culture? Not only is that RUDE, but that's stupidity as well. You chose to move to another country, so it's your job to learn as much about that country as you can. Don't expect us to lose a little bit of what makes us Filipino, because that's just unfair on us.

Again, we might try to fit in, but we never, and I mean NEVER, forget that we're Filipino. Unless you're ashamed of that fact, that is.

I think everyone has a good point. But what I was trying to say was there are some people who are not anymore embracing the fact that their Filipinos, which is sad.( I dunno if they're ashamed of being Filipinos or not). I'm not saying you speak tagalog wherever you go and not learn the culture of what country you're living now.

we moved here in US a year ago and i still keep my traditional values and beliefs. I Love Philippines so much

mahirap lang talagang mag-adjust... because we tend to do what they do & adapt how they act.we are so much expose to a culture new to us and we can't do anything but to get by... the language itself is a major factor kasi we are using other language @ ang hirap isipin na we can't freely talk tagalog anytime Siguro minsan nadadala rin--pero what's important is I know where I came from and I acknowledge it.

Pansinin nyo rin that all who migrated talk taglish... balancing two cultures i guess...

i agree about the age factor--the younger you are the more you'll get used to the culture. kaya ung iba medyo limot na mag-tagalog. but by all means they can understand even a little...

what saddens me was the fact na kahit nagkasabay lng kayo-- inuulan ka ng english kahit super marunong syang magsalita ng tagalog. And also those who throw insults to their kapwa pinoy

Filipino teens are way cooler than kids here.
I'm not trying to offend anybody, I'm just being honest with my feelings...

I'm so happy that we try to understand each other in this forum.

I really dont mind them fitting it, I mean they need that they wont be able to survive if they dont adapt in it, but never never ever forget the values and your beliefs as a Filipino. Adapting doesn't mean forgetting, its just that you need to be more open minded in things.

I think they need to embrace their culture more because what they have it special. Their differences make them special and unique.

I really bothers me when newcomers are concerned with their accent. I mean I understand them, but to a certain extent. They shouldn't be ashamed of where they come from. Heck, if I had that accent I would flaunt it. Lol. I guess I'm different and not afraid to be bold.

Another thing that bothers me is when they wear stuff that symbolizes the Philippines such as jackets of shirts that have the Philippine flag but they don't even know basics of being a Filipino. I can kind of understand if they can't speak the language because their parents didn't teach them but I think they should try to at least know some Filipino history. They can go on the internet and research! There are so many ways to learn about the history of the Philippines or even the language! I guess what I am trying to say is I don't like it when they just wear it to wear it. If they wear it there should be some meaning behind it. It's okay to show off your culture, but hopefully without ignorance.

Minsan kailangan mo din makibagay sa kanila. Kasi iba din ang style dito sa abroad eh. Di man siguro nila pinapakita un eh nasa kanila padin ung ugali na un. pwera nalang sa iba na masyado na lumaki ang ulo porket nasa abroad na at halos di na kinikilala kahit mga kababayan. akala mo kung sino silang mas lamang sa kapwa pinoy nila at feeling nila isa na sila sa mga foreigners kasi na adapt na nila ung ways at ugali. buti nalang at may ibang pinoys parin na humble and proud padin .
