    Curriculum

    Filiipno language course is based on similarities with the ”Common European Framework of Reference for Languages” and our level 1 to 3 are structured similarily with A1 to B1. Filiipno language is however unique in the sense that it is mixed with English, our focus is to teach colloquial Filipino and we will choose the English (or in some cases Taglish) word, phrases and even grammatical structures in which they would be the most common over pure Tagalog.

    We should also be well within the recommended hours to achieve beginner level proficiency, which is 60-80 hours (homework included) per level. This estimation of time does not take the category of the students in consideration.

    For those of you who are registering for level 1, no previous knowledge of Filipino is required, Level 1 is aimed at complete beginners. To register for Level 2 we expect you to pass the Level 1 final test at the end of the semester. See below for chart of what you will learn:
