For those who are going to the 2nd Philippine Conference Workshop on Mother Tongue-Based Multilingual Education (MTBMLE 2) which will be held February 16-18, 2012, at the Punta Villa Resort (Tel. # (63) 033-336-11-05 to 06 and (63) 033-337-72-53; email – info@puntavillailoilo.com; URL – http://www.puntavillailoilo.com/) , Sto.

Should you plan to arrive on February 15, you can opt to check in at Punta Villa Resort and just pay the additional 200 pesos for the additional night lodging (you would also pay the same amount for each night that you may plan to stay after the conference). The conference registration fee will cover conference kit and certificate; lodging for February 16 and 17; breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks for February 16 and 17; breakfast, morning snacks and lunch for February 18.

  1. Thanks for the info. I already bought a plane ticket, but I had fever last night. I hope I’ll get well so I can really attend. The topics are very interesting and I don’t want to miss them.

    • Take a couple of aspirin and please notify me (via comment) when you’re already at the Punta Villa Resort conference hall on the 16th, hobnobbing with most every conferee and exchanging pleasantries and info! You think you can do me a tremendous favor by requesting the presenters of papers, posters, etc., to email their MLE materials (as attachments) to joepadre@att.net for publication in Multilingual Philippines? Will be much obliged… Those papers, as you can appreciate, have to be made accessible to everyone interested in them on the pages of this website. There’s a wider audience out there — like teachers, students, parents, LGUs and NGO stakeholders, researchers, even the international audience, who were unable to physically attend the Iloilo City MTBMLE confab. If you could collect hard copies or Internet links of the papers and share them with Multilingual Philippines, that would be just GRRRRREATTTT! We’ll make sure to publish ’em!
