Con

we must be proud of our own language which is filipino.....I firmly believe that using filipino language is easy to tackle with something than english language
DucoNihilum

Pro

I will center this argument around America, as this debate website is an American site.

American children might have a very hard time understanding anything but English, unless they are learning a new language, such as filipino. Furtheremore, some courses need to be taught in English, such as.... English.

Pro

In order to avoid confusion for students in America, the English Language should be used to teach all subjects to all students, except for specific language classes. Furthermore, English should definitely be used to teach English, as it is the only way to actually teach the language.

You are a Filipino and you don't even know that "Filipino" is not a language? "Tagalog" is the name of the language, not filipino. Barangay Pinoy! You lose the debate on those grounds alone. Your shipment of fail has arrived.

hahah! am a filipino and very proud to be one.. despite this fact, i give this round to pro since he had a much vivid argument (barely called it as one). i assume that you`re an american, so evidently, you don`t have filipino classes.. lolz..

What the heck was this about? Duco, are you telling me they didn't teach you Filipino in 2nd grade? What kind of cheap school did you go to?

On another note... what dialect of Filipino would "all things" be taught in? Most Filipinos do not speak more than one dialect- other than the commercially popular "Tagalish" which is a neologism of Tagalog and English used in Filipino cable networks... but that is just confusing!!!
