of the curriculum? User: are you in favor of the implementation of mother tongue based ion our education as part of the curriculum?
Weegy: Earlier this year the Department of Education released a Department order providing for the implementation of Mother Tongue-based [ Multilingual Education (MTB-MLE) on kindergarten and grades 1 to 3 in all public schools as part of the new [ Administration’s education reforms. The said order provides for the use of the students’ mother tongues both as a subject matter and as a medium of instruction. The positive effect of using the first language as a medium of instruction has been consistently backed by linguistic studies, so there is little dispute with regards to this reform’s benefit. Using the first language will invariably make access to the body of knowledge in a particular science much easier for an individual. But it must be pointed out that the Philippines has a rather complicated linguistic situation. While the Tagalog language serves as backbone to a national language in the making (called Filipino), there is a multitude of languages being spoken as mother tongues in the Archipelago. There are areas with a dominant L1 (mainly homelands of the language, the Tagalog area for Tagalog, Cebu and Negros Oriental for Cebuano, Iloilo and Bacolod for Hiligaynon, etc.), but there are areas with a great degree of linguistic diversity (Davao, Iligan, etc.), and application of the program on the latter will prove to be difficult. While the Mode 2 of the DepEd order provides for the use of the Lingua Franca of the area (which is among eight major languages identified by the order), the Mode is only in the event that the L1s being used do not have an orthography (or simply when the L1s used are not among the eight identified major languages). There will be a theoretical complication when the situation is to be applied on an area with such linguistic diversity that there are more than one of the eight major languages being used (i.e. in Davao, Cebuano only outnumbers Tagalog by a small margin; in M’lang, North Cotabato, Hiligaynon barely outnumbers Cebuano). ...

what is mother tongue baesd multilingual education?
Weegy: MANILA, Philippines - Twelve major Philippine languages will be used as mediums of instruction in public schools from kindergarten to Grade 3 starting next school year. [ The move is part of efforts of the Department of Education (DepEd) to boost its Mother Tongue-Based Multi-Lingual Education (MTB-MLE) program aimed at raising student competency. Education Secretary Armin Luistro said the DepEd is expected to finish the learning modules in time for the June school opening. “We are institutionalizing the teaching of MTB-MLE as one of the subjects from Grade 1 to Grade 3 and as the medium of instruction from Kinder to Grade 3 so that we can develop well-rounded and life-long learners under the K to 12 basic education reform program,” he said, Local and international studies have shown that using the language at home (mother tongue) inside the classroom during the learners’ early years of schooling produce better and faster learners who can easily learn a second (Filipino) and even third language (English). The 12 major Philippine languages are Tagalog, Kapampangan, Pangasinense, Iloko, Bikol, Cebuano, Hiligaynon, Waray, Tausug, Maguindanaoan, Maranao, and Chabacano. Under the program, Filipino will be introduced in the first semester of Grade 1 for oral fluency (speaking). For reading and writing purposes, it will be taught beginning in the second semester of Grade 1. The four other macro skills – listening, speaking, reading and writing in Filipino – will continuously be developed from Grades 2 to 6. Meanwhile, English as a subject will be introduced in the second semester of Grade 1, while reading and writing in English will start in the first semester of Grade 2. Currently, 921 schools nationwide have been pioneering the MTB-MLE, including for children of indigenous people. Read more: ] (More)

WHAT IS Mother Tongue Based (MTB) MultiLingual Education
Weegy: MT-based MLE refers to the use of students’ mother tongue and two or more additional languages as Languages of Instruction (LoI) in school. [ In other contexts, the term is used to describe bilingual education across multiple language communities—each community using their own mother tongue plus the official school language for instruction. In the non-dominant language communities of South Asia, multilingual education usually follows the first definition: learning and using multiple languages in school. In some South Asian countries, MT-based MLE includes four languages—the students’ mother tongue or first language, a regional language, the national language and an international language. ] (More)
