Modern Languages & Literatures


The courses are designed to develop student competency in Filipino/Tagalog focusing first on the sounds and rhythm of the language, vocabulary building, and sentence patterns. A functional-situational approach to language learning is utilized to develop an understanding and appreciation of Filipino culture and customs associated with the use of various linguistic forms. All levels will enhance and work toward increased proficiency in speaking, listening, reading, and writing through language games and exercises.
