When you want to explain to someone that one of the islands in the Philippines is called Cebu, then you can say it in the following ways:
-Cebu is an island in the Philippines
-One of the islands in the Philippines is called Cebu
-There is an island in the Philippines called Cebu.

Then you can maybe go on and describe the island and what makes it special.
あなたが誰かにフィリピンの島々の内の一つがセブですと説明したい時、以下のように表現できます。

-Cebu is an island in the Philippines
-One of the islands in the Philippines is called Cebu
-There is an island in the Philippines called Cebu.

それから続けて、セブ島の何が特別なのかを説明できるでしょう。

"Cebu island is one of the 7107 islands that make up the Philippines."- This emphasizes that Cebu is not the only island, it is one of 7107 islands that fall under the Phillippines. It gives you the amount of island Philippines has and also where it is located.

"One of the islands in the Philippines is called Cebu." - This emphasizes one particular island, Cebu. Although it starts with saying there are many, it closely draws attention to just one.

"Cebu the island, can be found in the Philippines. "- This gives you the islands name and where it is located. It only pays attention to the name of the island and the name of where it is found.
"Cebu island is one of the 7107 islands that make up the Philippines."(セブはフィリピンを構成する7107の島の一つです)
→これは、セブがフィリピンにある7107の島のうちの一つであること、唯一の島ではないことを強調します。ここでは、フィリピンにある島の数とセブ島の場所について伝えています。

"One of the islands in the Philippines is called Cebu."(フィリピンにある島の一つにセブというのがあります)
→ここでは、セブを強調しています。まず、たくさんの島があることを触れて、それから焦点をセブに絞っています。

"Cebu the island, can be found in the Philippines."(セブ島はフィリピンにあります)
→島の名前とその場所を伝えています。島の名前とその場所のみに焦点を当てています。

"Cebu is one of the islands in the Philippines"
'One of..' is the expression used when identify one in many, this sentence is suggesting there are more than one island located in the Philippines.
"Cebu is an island located off the coast of the Philippines"
'Located off' is the expression used to imply it is close to a particular destination, located off / located by / located close too.
'coast' refers to the coast line/the sea of the country.
"Cebu is one of the islands in the Philippines"(セブはフィリピンにある島の一つです)

'One of..' は、たくさんのもののうちの一つを指すときに使われる表現です。この文はフィリピンに複数の島があることを示します。


"Cebu is an island located off the coast of the Philippines"(セブはフィリピン沖にある島です)

'Located off' は、それがある場所の近くにあることを表します。
'Coast' は「海岸線」を指します。

  • Cebu is an island in the Philippine archipelago

An archipelago is a big group of small islands. The Philippines is a perfect example of an archipelago as it is made up of so many islands.
archipelago=~諸島
フィリピンはいくつもの島からなりたっているので、「諸島」を表す良い例です。

  • Cebu is an island, but it is part of the Philippines.

  • Cebu is one of the thousands of islands that make up the Philippines.

  • Cebu is one of over seven thousand islands that form the Philippines.

The Philippines is an archipelagic country, meaning that it is made up of a group of islands.

If you want to impress someone with the large number of islands that make up the Philippines you might like to say "Cebu is one of the thousands of islands that make up the Philippines."or "Cebu is one of over seven thousand islands that form the Philippines.".
フィリピンは「archipelagic country(島が集まってできた国)」です。

フィリピンにある島の数を伝えて、アッと言わせたければ:
"Cebu is one of the thousands of islands that make up the Philippines."
(セブ島は、フィリピンにある数千の島の1つです)
又は
"Cebu is one of over seven thousand islands that form the Philippines."
(セブ島は、フィリピンにある7千を超える島の1つです)
と言ってもいいかもしれません。
