English is widely used on the island. You won’t have a difficult time communicating with the locals as most, if not all, of them speak or understand basic English.
Tagalog is also widely used, so you may want to brush up on your basic Tagalog words especially when haggling for prices in the market. If you’re up for a challenge, try learning a few Aklanon or Boracaynon words, as the dialect is the native language of this region.
