The activities in the
lessons are organized to develop reading, writing, speaking, listening and grammar skills
in Tagalog. Each thematic lesson contains the following sections: pre-activity,
presentation of the lesson (dialogs from the book), vocabulary, and reading, and writing
activity. These sections are described below.
This is an activity presented as an e-mail quiz, word drag and drop quiz, or picture
drag and drop quiz, and/or a song or poem/rhyme. This activity prepares and helps learners
get ready for the presentation of the lesson (dialog) and the reading and writing
back to top
2. Presentation of the
This is a written dialog (conversation) with audio presentation. Learners will
listen to and read dialog utterances of people in many cultural (Filipino)
situations. The dialogs are theme specific. This section will help learners
practice their listening, reading, and pronunciation skills in Tagalog/Filipino.
This contains a list of vocabulary words from a dialog. Words to help
learners build their vocabulary for a specific theme are also included. These
words prepare learners for the reading and writing activities. A
dictionary applet is also included to help learners look up unfamiliar words.
4. Reading and Writing
This is a variety of quizzes, narratives, and (in some pages) cultural notes.
Most of the quizzes are based on the dialogs and some are based on reading a text.
The quizzes could be multiple- choice questions, short answer questions, or
fill-in the blanks.
