Most other people in the Philippines speak Filipino as a second language. The other major language groups in the Philippines are also Autronesian languages, a fact that reflects the origins of the islands' population; however, there is a strong Spanish influence in the Philippines, for it was a Spanish colony for many years. The use of English is also a colonial heritage as the islands were a possession of the United States for much of the first half of the 20th century.
