Q: "...and that's what most Filipinos believe in"

is the preposition (in) necessary?
A: @Trisa29

Don't say believe in; I personally think it sounds weird if you're just talking about heritage.

For instance, I believe that some of my ancestors came from Cornwall in England. I don't believe in it, like I might believe in Jesus Christ. I just think that it might be true because someone told me that it was. Do you see? It is not one of my core beliefs. It isn't related to my morals and my psychology. It's just something which I happen to think is true.

Q: When I first met him, I though he was half Filipinos or something. But he was full Japanese. bu doğru görünüyor mu?
A: But it turned out he was full blooded Japanese.
Q: I'm troubled by unreliable Filipinos answering my questions on English for me with confidence at Hinative. bu doğru görünüyor mu?
A: great pronunciation, and the sentence is correct. I would suggest these slight changes: "...answering my English questions with confidence at Hinative."

I dropped the "for me", as it is understood from the context, and combined "questions on English" into "English questions". these changes will help the sentence flow better.
