CHAPTER I
PROBLEM AND ITS BACKGROUND Introduction

For many decades, Philippines has been enjoying the prestige of being considered the third largest English speaking country in the world after the United States and United Kingdom. Because of this, Filipinos were given the edge over nationalities in terms of landing a job anywhere in the world. English remains as one of the official languages in the Philippines. It is the language being used in business, in government and in education. However, this dominance of the Filipinos in English language is now in question. Numerous studies have been conducted. Print and broadcast media contain challenging commentary and observations about the decline in English proficiency in the country, Torrente (2008). To mention a few, the study conducted by Ruaya (1997) among first year college students of PMI Colleges Bohol, showed that students’ grammar proficiency is 28.97 %. This means that they did not achieve the mastery level that they were expected to have at this level of educational pursuit. Another study conducted by Bautista (1996) shows the empirical data showed interesting indications of growing Pilipino dominance which explains why incoming freshmen in college were observed to be weak in English and show ‘deterioration’ in the English Language. A study conducted by the Social Weather Station (SWS) in 2006 confirms this decline in English proficiency. The study commissioned by the European Chamber of commerce of the Philippines, was conducted to 1,200 respondents. In the result of the study, they found out that 5% of the Filipino polled claimed they made full use of the English Language. 35% claimed that they made fair use of the language. Those who claimed that they partially used the English language is 27% while those who made almost no use of the language is 19%. Those who admitted that they were not competent in any way in using the language is 14%. This study shows a decline in all aspects of

    00–36,000 years ago.[4][6] Dogs' value to early human hunter-gatherers led to them quickly becoming ubiquitous across world cultures. Dogs perform many roles for people, such as hunting, herding, pulling loads, protection, assisting police and military, companionship, and, more recently, aiding handicapped individuals. This impact on human society has given them the nickname "man's best friend" in the Western world. In some cultures, however, dogs are also a source of meat.[7][8] In 2001, there were…
