This research aims to determine the communication skills in speaking Filipino language of college students. Analytical-descriptive tests were used to determine the communication skill of 200 students from four (4) campuses of Sorsogon State College department. Purposive sampling was used to identify the participants in this study. The auxiliary equipment was tape recorder, cellphone and checklist were used to collect data. The data were analyzed using frequency count and percentage. The result of the study shows that the type of communication skill in speaking Filipino is not standard Filipino but that Filipino with English. The pronunciation of the students in the segmental phonemes /e/ – /i/ and /o/ – /u/ is not arbitrary. Paraphrasing is the type of lexicon used by the students. The use of short and long sentences using syntax in speaking Filipino is moderate. There is a partial codeswitching used. It is recommended that the teachers give more oral practicum to students who are less proficient in the Filipino Language towards greater fluency in their own language. All Filipino teachers will be given the opportunity to attend Filipino workshops to further develop their ability to speak Filipino. Conduct other studies on spoken Filipino in different parts of the Philippines that will be the basis of the Filipino standardization process.
