Philippines Leads MTB-MLE Initiatives

UNESCO-Bangkok recognizes the role of the Philippines in leading the mother tongue based multilingual education initiatives in the region. This was articulated by UNESCO-Bangkok Director, Dr. Gwang-Jo Kim, during the opening program of the 5th International Conference on Language and Education.

"Asia-Pacific is home to some of the most comprehensive MTB-MLE policies in the world, including in the Philippines, a regional leader in institutionalizing the approach.."

MTB-MLE Conference 2016

Last February 18-20, we organized a conference focusing on Sustainable Development Goals for Education 2030. It was held at Waterfront-Manila Pavilion Hotel. Participants from colleges/universities and DepEd from various places in the country came together to present a paper or do a teaching demonstration. We welcome the first batch of members who joined 170+ Talaytayan MLE. We hope that through them our advocacy for MTB-MLE will be brought to more places
