  • 14. DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION Assumptions about Language Acquisition
  • 15. DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION Jim Cummins Common Underlying Proficiency Principle There is a common underlying base of knowledge that bilingual and multilinguals leverage when they use their L1 to facilitate L2 learning. Knowledge gained in one language facilitates learning in the second.

  • 22. DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION In Kinder to Grade 3, the childs dominant language is used as the language of learning. Mother Tongue-Based Multilingual Education (MTB-MLE) DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION The learners retain their ethnic identity, culture, heritage and values. Children learn better and are more active in class and learn a second language even faster when they are first taught in a language they understand. Filipino and English language proficiency is developed from Kinder to Grade 3 but very gradually. Mother Tongue is used in instruction and learning materials of other learning areas.
  • 23. DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION MTB-MLE Bridging Framework DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION Mother Tongue Literate in L1 Filipino English Literate in L1 and L2 A multi-literate Filipino learner
  • 24. DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION Languages in MTB MLE: What is the goal for children in local language communities? They will build a strong educational foundation in their first language (L1 for cognitive development); They will also learn one or more additional languages (L1 as the foundation for learning L2, L3, etc.) and They will use both / all languages for life-long learning.
  • 25. DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION First learners listen to L2 and respond with actions The best [language learning] methods do not force early [speaking] in the L2 but allow students to [speak] when they are ready, recognizing that improvement comes from supplying communicative and comprehensible input [hearing], and not from forcing and correcting [speech] (Krashan, 2001).
  • 26. DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION Then, when they are ready, they begin speaking in L2. comprehensible output, as an adjunct to comprehensible input, helps students become aware of the structure of the language and helps them become more competent in its use. (Cummins, 2001).
  • 27. DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION Finally, they use their knowledge on reading and writing in L1 AND their knowledge on oral L2 to bridge to reading and writing in L2 Children's knowledge and skills transfer across languages from the mother tongueto the school language (Jim Cummins, 2000)
