Filipino 1A is the first semester in the Introductory Filipino two-semester series (Filipino 1A and 1B). This is a beginners’ class with emphasis on the four basic skills: listening, speaking, reading, and writing. The course uses the functional approach in learning a language. At the end of the series, students should be able 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.
