Primary Instructor:

Filipino I is a two-term sequence designed to give the student who has little or no knowledge of Filipino the necessary basis for learning to speak it and to have an acquaintance with the cultural context in which it functions. Filipino is particularly interesting in the way it has integrated the broad influences of both Spanish and English into its own syntactic and semantic systems. The oral approach is greatly emphasized in the classroom, using questions and answers and short dialogues to develop active use of the language in the most natural way possible. This is complemented by the use of taped lessons that accompany the textbook. Evaluation is based on frequent short quizzes, class performance, and a final examination. At the end of this course, the student should be able to handle brief exchanges in common social situations and to read and write simple dialogues and essays in Filipino.

The text is Conversational Tagalog: A Functional-Situational Approach by Teresita Ramos. Supplementary readings and video presentations will be provided when appropriate.
