The Philippines moves to save dying languages

With no cohesive plan in place, ministry of education admits country’s heritage may soon vanish.

The archipelago is home to more than 170 dialects, but some of them have only a few speakers left and there’s concern many of the indigenous languages could be lost forever.

Al Jazeera’s Jamela Alindogan reports on what’s being done to keep them alive.
