Filipinos can Excel

He stresses that the Filipinos have the edge for international job placements because they speak English than other nationalities.
The Filipinos can still be very nationalistic even if almost all speak English. They have a distinct culture that only Filipinos have from the national wears to daily customs of respecting the elderly, helping out as a community or “Bayanihan” and more.
