Favorite Foreign Language Elective

Academics

Italian - favorite ko pag kumakanta kame ng “Volare, oh-oh, kantare, oh-oh, nebu, di pinto de blu…” at yung “Se bastase una bella cancione…bastase dia…”

As a self-proclaimed francophile, French was my foreign language elective. I took up French10 and French 11 in one semester. Hahah still planning to take up advance french in the future. I still know some of the basic regular verb conjugation. :drinking:

I took up Bahasa 10/11 in college not because I wanted to, but because I just needed additional units. Ok naman, may natutunan nung panahon na yun but now I only remember 1 word :lol:

Took up Italian1 last 2018 via DEL’s Extramural Program. Enjoyed it so much, I have already registered for Italian4 this year but unfortunately, it got dissolved. Once in a while I go to DuoLingo to practice para hindi makalimot. :biggrin:

I did this too! French 10 and 11. Haha. 10 years after, am trying my stock knowledge in Duolingo. Pretty cool that I can still remember some lessons :star2:

Same here! I was able to use it on a trip to Bali a few years back and my husband and I got local rates for all our visited sites. Dun ko lang nalaman na may difference pala yung turista sa local hehe. :biglaugh:

Nice! Si Dexter Calizar ba prof mo? :hihi:

Took up French 10, 11, 12, and 13. Required kasi sa course ko. Then I had my OJT at AFM Library. Sobrang saya ng multimedia collection nila! Film showing galore. Lol

Nag-French 10/11 at Span 10/11 ako nung college. Prof ko sa parehas si Madame De Gilla sobrang comedy.

Wrong move, dapat tinuloy-tuloy ko 1 language lang. Wala na tuloy ako maalala ngayon kundi mag-bilang. So after college nag-extrams ako sa Linguistics. Naka-8 modules na ako ng Korean so
안녕하세요 케플러입니다 ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

Wow galing!

Dati gusto kong mag Japanese pero kakanood ng kdrama, gusto ko na lang mag Korean tuloy :lol: Ang bilis nga lang maubos ng slots sa extrams :phew:

True!!! Mabilis maubos haha pero habang tumataas ng module nauubos ang tao.

Nag-module 5 ako na mag-isa. :laugh: Stress!!! Nagsimula kaming 3 pero graduating student 'yung isa, 'yung isa malayo ang bahay so nagdrop sila midway. Pero sulit bayad ko, P3,500 personal lessons from a Linguistics prof.

May FB page ang Linguistics Extrams Ate @mimi ! Pinopost nila kaagad doon kapag open na for enrollment hehe. I think dumami-dami na ang classes kasi may mga bago silang lecturers.

OMG, mag-isa lang! Ang saya na hindi!! Nasubukan ko yun, sa Italian class ko, late yung mga kaklase ko, nagno-nosebleed na ako kaka discuss namin ng teacher. Wala siyang ibang pwedeng tawagin to recite di ba? :rotfl: Pero tama, pakonti ng pakonti yung classmates. 4 na lang kami pursuing Italian 4, from 2 different Italian 1 classes pa kami, ang dami nang di nagcontinue.

Finafollow ko rin yung Linguistics page sa fb, doon ko nga nakikita na laging ubusan ng slots! Mas binabantayan ko kasi yung sa European Languages, eh mas maaga pala nagpopost ng openings yung Linguistics, sarado na nung nakita ko. :hihi:

Haha kapag recitation pa, kung 10 kayo at 10 questions yung seatwork, except sa 1st person, may panahon kang ihanda ang confidence mo para sumagot. :biglaugh:

Umabot ka na pala ng Italian 4! Mas maganda talaga tuluy-tuloy one language lang haha. Nakakatuwa rin kapag nag-visit ka doon sa country ng inaral mo na language kasi mas mabait sila sa’yo. Haha. Best benefit. Nabibigyan ako ng kung anu-anong freebie kasi natutuwa 'yung mga ahjumma sa akin kapag chinichika ko sila. :laugh:
