    My wife lived in the UK with me for 12 years and yes they are treated good, mostly. She had some disputes with two of her employers whom I had them one of them sacked, the other I could do nothing about but I told my wife to quit her job.

    We have also had issues in the work place, I think one reason is because the Filipina girls work hard and the local girls just like to complain more than they work.

    I think it's fair to say that being able to talk Tagalog will make you most popular with Filipino's
    Filipino's living in UK usually get on well in UK, if they choose to mix with other nationalities and speaking in English.
    However for a Westerner who doesn't speak Tagalog in Philippines, after pleasantries are exchanged at functions, you will feel a little left out of things in my experience.
    I must also admit to sometimes making excuses and leaving parties/ get-together's in UK when people start to converse in Tagalog and you are left twiggling your thumbs, I find very few Filipino's mix outside their fellow countrymen in their leisure time and presumably the same goes for other foreign nationalities too . Unless people are willing to intergrate into the local communities there will always be a distancing and culture difference.
