What's The English Of...
English is a global language, we can't argue with that. Lucky I, that I was born in a speaking country, yet, it's not really our first language nor claiming ourselves as native speakers of English but then, it's our official and also a medium of instructions daily & everywhere.
As an experienced ESL teacher locally and abroad, to be proficient and fluent in all aspects is a must or else it's gonna be an abysmal embarrassment for life, especially to those Filipinos who claim and teach English abroad.
What's driven me to post this, is that at times when a foreign visitor would come to the Philippines and certainly ask about our things around in English out of their curiosities & appreciating our environments. Lo, I have thought of sharing what I've learned about when I was asked the English of "Banaba" tree, (Queen's Flower/Pride of India)
Well, here are the lists that I knew some in English which practically you could see in the Philippines and even in some parts of Southeast Asia. Thanks to Stuart for the help..really.
This may help somehow to those who are eager to learn the English translations of Philippine plants, I mean just the common plants that you could see around your backyard.
