Mother Tongue Teaching

The Department of Education (DepEd) recently implemented policies in utilizing one’s mother tongue as the medium of instruction. The agency had decided to pursue with such guidelines to be able to harmonize and reorganize the production of indigenized teaching and learning materials. They will also conduct monitoring and evaluation of the DepEd’s mother tongue-based multilingual education (MTB-MLE). By this means, children will easily learn and enter the unfamiliar world of school learning.

The MTB-MLE program will definitely provide a link between home and school.

This program will be implemented from preschool up to Grade 3 and in the alternative learning system.

  1. Good to hear this! If they would not implement mother tongue today, young generations might really forget their mother tongue language.It’s still important for them to learn it, which will help them communicate with their old native grand grand parents. 🙂

  2. It’s still important to learn mother tongue, in the future someone would ask you about this your proud to say you know your mother tongue very well. =P
