In the Philippines over 170 languages are spoken. Of all of these languages, only 2 (filipino and English) are official languages. At least 10 are considered major and at least 8 are considered co-official.

There are 13 native languages with at least one million native speakers: Tagalog, Cebuano, Ilokano, Hiligaynon, Waray-Waray, Kapampangan, Bikol, Albay Bikol, Pangasinan, Maranao, Maguindanao, Kinaray-a, and Tausug.
