Allow me to take this opportunity to thank everyone behind MLE. I think it is an effective (and perhaps the only effective) solution to prevent the near extinction of ethnic and native languages in the Philippines.
I’ve read the DepEd order, too, and am equally elated that this is going somewhere. I’m wondering when will MLE be actually adopted in our schools? I know I may be too excited, or that the restructuring of the educational programs may take a while. But I’m just really curious what is being done as of this time, or are there things being done to help speed up its implementation, etc.?
Please be patient with my impatience. 🙂
I’m actually on the brink of marching to our DepEd office to inquire about it. But I guess I can still restrain myself.
Just sharing my gladness,
