Communicating in English DOES NOT make one less of a Filipino. Being a proud Filipino does not mean always speaking in tagalog. Being a Filipino is naturally shown in one's personality and attitude.

Learning to speak English fluently will make you competent enough that you are a Filipino.
Nobody donates a language. A language is either inherited of acquired.

This is in the imperative or "command" form. It means "don't speak". "No habla" would be "you(or he/she) do not speak", as a statement of fact. This is a subtle difference, and one in which there is no direct equivalent in English.
