This is true, the Americans came in 1900s and English replaced Spanish. The city where I am from, Cavite la Punta, which is South of Manila was heavily Hispanicized. The generation of my Abuela were the last ones to speak or at least able to fairly comprehend Spanish. To this day, only selected persons are able to use Chavacano in our area.

The variant in the province of Zamboanga in the Southern Philippines is still fairing well. The variant in Cavite la Punta is not doing good though. I heard a story from my former instructor that the local parish is offering language classes for those interested in learning the language. Mostly the elderly were the only ones speaking it right now and they use it as a cryptolanguage when talking about sensitive issues in their local area.

Interesting I thought the chavacano was very spoken xd. I see in Philippines they use the word pendejo but with a different meaning, is this true or is the same?
