Most Ilonggos are actually fluent in English. They are also quite comfortable communicating with it. Just ask the hordes of Koreans coming to our humble city just to study and learn English.

But nothing really beats the smile you can get from an Ilonggo when they hear you trying to speak their own language. This will surely get you in the good side of any Ilonggo.

Even if you only know how to say “Good Morning” (Maayong agá) it will endear you to the person whom you’re speaking and will definitely gain you an instant friend.
