I've been teaching Tagalog and English at the Christian Language Study Center, the pioneer in teaching Philippine languages, since 2004. My students are from all over the world. They come from South Africa, North and South America, Europe, and of course Asia.
I have had students as young as 6 years old and as old as 65. Most of my students are missionaries. Some are doctors and teachers in their homeland. Some are children and university students.
It's fun teaching languages. My students learn from me and I also learn from them. I teach them to use the language they are learning for everyday situations and purposes related to their age, social life, work, and leisure.
My philosophy is that learning a second or foreign language is more rewarding, meaningful, and effective when the language is used for authentic communication.
I give my students the opportunity to personalize the language they learn, make use of their own knowledge and experiences, and express their ideas and opinions.
