There are more than 100 languages in the Philippines. You may be surprised to know that there is at least one non-verbal language as well. FSL stands for Filipino Sign Language, a form of visual and manual communication that includes facial expression and body movements used by deaf individuals and hearing interpreters in the Philippines.

FSL is a distinct language with its own content, grammar and principles that are not dependent on spoken English or Filipino languages and is a completely visually-oriented language.

Here are 8 FSL for terms related to the country's current woes with mismanaged public funds, demonstrated by Ma. Elena Lozada. The signs in the videos are repeated twice.
