The Philippines is an island country in Southeast Asia situated in the western Pacific Ocean. It was formerly a colony of Spain. The official languages are Filipino and English.<ref>Wikipedia contributors, "Philippines," in ''Wikipedia: the Free Encyclopedia'', https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philippines, accessed 28 March 2016.</ref>
