This is the continuation of the beginners’ class with emphasis on the four basic skills: listening, speaking, reading, and writing. The course uses the functional approach in learning a language. The students focus on basic conversational skills in Filipino. A review of basic grammar rules learned in Filipino 1A (Fall Semester) will be done at the beginning of the semester. At the end of the course, they should be more ready to use Filipino in greetings and situations such as visiting a friend’s house, shopping, telling the time, making an appointment, asking and giving directions, and going to a medical clinic. They should also be able to use Filipino in: describing people, objects, and places; narrating an event or simple story; expressing feelings; and expressing agreement or disagreement. The teacher shall use only Filipino with the aid of pictures and other teaching materials. However, English may be used in explaining grammar rules and discussing Philippine culture. Classroom techniques shall include games, songs, pair- work, role- plays and writing exercises.
