Up for @Wee and @Gines.
Yes, The language should be "Filipino." Tagalog is a dialect used by the Tagalog-speaking regions in the Philippines (particularly in the island of Luzon such as Laguna, Bulacan, Quezon Province, Batangas, Mindoro).
Filipino, meanwhile, is the language spoken by Filipinos in the Philippines which includes words, phrases, syntax, conjugation mainly drawn from Tagalog.
Filipino includes Spanish, Chinese, Arabic and English – among many languages – localized/loanwords words, i.e. kumusta (Sp.= ¿Como esta? "How are you?"), ate (Ch.=achi=elder sister), salamat (Ar.=Slamah "Thank you"), nars (En.=nurse).
Filipino also includes loanwords from other Philippine languages:
"inday" - (Visayan, elder sister or woman), "manang" (Ilocano, elder sister or woman), etc.
