AHEAD’s Conversational Filipino program teaches Filipino as a foreign language to the participants or enhances their very basic Filipino language skills through a number of lectures and practical workshops. Their progress will be ultimately tested through AHEAD’s Diagnostic and Simulated Tests. The training program may be stretched further to accommodate the needs of the participants especially in a particular subject matter.
It should be noted that Conversational Filipino assumes that the participants are at least slightly exposed to Filipino but still need to strengthen their foundations through structure and lexical resources. The training program also assumes that the participants can properly communicate in the English language.
