They're all doing well Enzo. I am still doing my thesis and also preparing a lot for the next school year for I might be handling pre-calculus, physics and other sciences in the specialized field in upper secondary level. I am very optimistic and hoping that everything will go well. It's a big transition after after more than two years of focus in English as Second Language (ESL) and content ESL (Mathematics) in the elementary level. I am learning and I will be learning with my students for sure.

For now, I have to enjoy my holiday which would start next week and be ready for the summer course which would commence on the 30th of this month.

How about you? Kumusta na???

I am very happy that someone like Mr. Jun Ayag is very willing to support Boholanos working abroad. Congratulations and contibue to move forward for you are making a difference in each move you do. Thank you and mabuhay!

I will e-mail you soon about the details of BOWWAC. I am interested to join.

LGU Philippines / Re: Corruption in RP? Blame the Church
« on: March 04, 2009, 01:08:22 PM »
Let's all stop this blame game because this is the very reason why we couldn't move towards progress. Instead of thinking of solutions to solve this "corruption problem" in our country, we stick unto finding the faults and not the way to correct the mistakes which have been committed. If we would know that the church has a mistake, could we correct them? NO!

In my previous post in this thread (enhancing Values Education) I have stated how the government could invest on training the students to become morally upright citizens which I think the wisest way to solve the problems we are facing right now. Let's not sit in a corner and say that the Philippines has no hope because the government is like this and like that and the church is like this and like that. As long as we are alive, we can contribute something for the betterment of our country. However, we could not contribute something which we don't have. We could not satisfy others without satisfying ourselves first -- this is a universal imperative.

Yes, I know in my mind and in my heart what's the best thing to do. I know that the Philippines will have a brighter future if each citizen possesses right values and attitude to govern their lives and not to govern other people's lives. I know that this is the best thing to do but I am not doing it right now because I left my country in exchange of what I called greener pasture. Instead of training my own countrymen, I am training other citizens to realize their fullest potential. However, I do not feel guilty about it because I know that I am doing it, first, for myself. I do understand that I could not gratify others' needs and wants without gratifying my needs first.

I know I can do it but I have to do it in myself first before I would do it for others.

Is it a Filipino mentality? When somebody did something good prior to his/her candidacy, they will all be associated as part of his/her plan for politics. ??? ??? ??? Not all dead were sick before they died. :D :D :D

Anonymous Diary Blog / Re: Call Center Life
« on: February 17, 2009, 08:16:56 PM »
Health risk is not the only problem which can be associated to the booming call center industry in the Philippines. A professor of mine once told that call centers are also capsizing the human resources of the country because qualified graduates (e.g., engineers, teachers, programmers) would prefer to settle for these high-paying call center jobs because of the attrractive compensation the companies are offering than really working at their respective fields where they could be highly utilized. The job of a CSR/CSA can be done by high school graduates whose English are of high quality.

LGU Philippines / Re: Corruption in RP? Blame the Church

The corruption in the Philippines (which is a "Catholic" country per se) is not a failure of the church itself because if we will try to look unto it, the church and the state is separated (although the extent of sepparation is not as high as in the U.S.A.).

If we would only look at the other side of the issue, everything rooted from  education itself. Even if religion is responsible in developing the moral attributes of every member, the government still has the highest responsibility of developing morally upright citizens.

However, the system of education provided by the country gives less importance to values education because the development of the students' cognitive skills are of the highest importance. Looking back in my basic education years, Values Education is not a big deal for us and it has been shown over and over again. We were given books for other subjects but not for values education although there were times wherein we enjoyed some values books but they were obviously of less "value" than the other books. Students would rather choose to fail in Values Education (because the credit is lesser/ sometimes it's 0 credit) than in Science, English or Mathematics.

In addition to, most Values Education teachers are teaching values as their extra subject and most of the times, there are no Values Education specialists unlike Math, Science, English and others. The government should have realized that Values Education is not something that would be taken for granted or would be given less importance.

And now, where's the root?

mao pud. mag share man gani ta ug toothbrush, satellite na ba hinoon...


kung wa ko masaup pagsabot, unsaon na lang... maau man hinoon pud na nga buhat. ug dili makatulog, magbaid sa gabas (literally). hahaha

go GEC!

If English is crazy, then all others will be. That "craziness" is a unique characteristic of every language.  In linguistics, that property is called arbitrary. Language's symbols are arbitrary. We have to understand that language (of any kind and origin) follows distinct symbols like phonemes (sound), morphemes (words) and syntax (sentences). However, the symbols (like gramatical rules and words) are based on an "agreed-upon" words to represent things, qualities, etc. and do not have direct relationship to the thing it is representing.

Example: Why do we call dog "DOG" when in fact the name seems to be irrelevant to the animal? Why can't we name it "BOW-WOW" which is, I think, more relevant because we hear them bark with that sound?

We call our capital city Tagbilaran not because of those so many myths and legends behind its name (which could be true) but because the word is the agreed name for the place. That shows the arbitrariness of language. In the end, we will understand that the main reason why we have language is for us to communicate and not just to name all those things and qualities around us.

Notice the deafs and mutes when they communicate using sign language, we could observe that most of the signs are not relevant to what they stand for. 

BTW, the post was so funny but it would help language teachers help the learners learn language better.

Learn English Online / Re: Shortest English Sentence
« on: February 14, 2009, 10:08:03 AM »
I have read a thread here about the proper usage of who and whom. People are usually confused when to use who and when to use whom. The only thing that we have to remember is that: who=subject (doer of the action) while whom=object (receiver of the action).

WHO: The man who is wearing brown shirt is my father. (the man is the one doing the action (wearing) therefor who should be used)

WHOM: The man whom I was talking with is my father. (take note that the subject is I (doing the action which is talking) and the receiver of the action is the man therefor whom should be used because the man is the object)

I hope this helps. It's the easiest way to remember the use of who and whom as I have learned, so far.

I think we have but not really our own because we share it with other countries in Asia. However, I heard that Philippines is underway in launching its orbitting satellite soon. But how soon is soon? That I don't know.

It's very useful especially that Philippines is usually hit by calamities. At least, orbitting satellites could help predict probable disasters.
