This study examined the impact of the dying dialect of Chabacano in Cavite on the local community. The findings from the qualitative phase highlighted the cultural significance of Chabacano and the challenges faced in preserving it. Parents reported a decrease in Chabacano usage among younger generations due to modern trends and technology. The quantitative phase assessed Generation Z's familiarity with Chabacano. The results showed that while a significant portion of Generation Z has some understanding of Chabacano, a smaller group struggles to comprehend it. Based on these findings, the study proposes a language learning initiative to promote Chabacano among Generation Z and revitalize the language for future generations.
