Filipino Beginners 2 –  2019

Location: Pimlico Academy School
Dates: (Sundays) Term 2: tbc
Time: 10am-1pm
Fee: £165

This course is aimed at learners who have taken an introductory or beginners 1 course or those who have had some exposure to Filipino and want to hone their skills.

Adapting a more communicative approach to language learning – common dialogues and expressions in practical everyday contexts will form part of each lesson with the right balance in speaking, listening, reading and writing – the four core communication skills.

The first half of every session will focus on revision of the introductory course contents such as basic sentence construction and verbal aspects —  with the incremental introduction of more complex Filipino grammatical structures, syntax and concepts such as the Pseudo verbs (dapat, gusto, maaari, kailangan, etc) and making comparisons, amongst others, in the second half of every class.

Vocabulary building in order to express time, expressions involving numbers and emotions will also be introduced. Lexical and cultural contexts will also be tackled, whilst pronunciation, linguistic nuances and stresses shall be practised in every session.

The course will be taught both in Filipino and English.

There will be a final written and verbal exam at the end of the course to assess language learning at beginners 2 level
