Content-based Materials for Heritage Learners of Filipino

Content-based Materials for Heritage Learners of Filipino

A team of Filipino language instructors, some based at UCLA, have developed content-based instructional materials for a complete introductory Filipino course for heritage learners.

Materials found at www.language.berkeley.edu/ucfcp

These materials serve as a "textbook on the web" or as a resource for other practitioners. Each unit introduces a topic on culture that is relevant to the Filipino-American experience. Each unit opens with a Cultural Essay in English and ends with a project in the target language.

Irma Peña-Gosalvez of U.C. Berkeley was principal investigator of this project, which also included UCLA's Nenita Pambid Domingo and Jiedson Domigpe.  This project was funded by a grant from the University of California Consortium for Language Learning and Teaching
