Hello, Welcome Here!

While most of these Chinese-Filipinos have Hokkien as their first language,
for some of the younger generations, English or Tagalog has become
the first language acquired, supplanting Hokkien, thus the inability
to converse in the Chinese dialect. However, what is distinct with
these younger ethnic Chinese is the inclusion of Hokkien words
and/or phrases when talking to their co-ethnics. These Chinese-
Filipinos tend to shift from Hokkien to Tagalog to English. It is
apparent that this code-switching is a conscious effort to maintain
an ethnic identity and a sense of belongingness to the ethnic Chinese
community, while being members of a larger Filipino community.
