The Philippines has started a new program to try to save its dying languages.

The archipelago is home to more than 170 languages, but some of them have only a few speakers left and there's concern many of the indigenous languages could be lost forever.

Al Jazeera's Jamela Alindogan reports on what's being done to keep them alive.
