Aside from the Standard English and Filipino Subjects that you took, were there any other foreign languages you learned from school?

For me, unfortunately none, the schools that i went to didn't include any other Language Subjects aside from those mentioned :( Though it is my dream to learn Japanese, Spanish or Mandarin :)

In the old days, we were required to take 12 units of Espaņol. One of my biggest regrets from those days was that I never took those courses seriously. I saw them simply as requirements. My mistake.

En la universidad de las islas filipinas, yo estudio y hablo lengua espaņol. Es muy interesante y mi proffesora es muy guapa.



alright alright my spanish sucks. I dont know how to speak in the past tense.
hehe. Old curriculum in UP requires the students to learn and take 6 units of the Spanish language whatever your course is. Although the music students are required to take up 5 different languages if i remember it correctly. Im an FA grad and I really wanted to learn Latin if i had the chance.

Intiendes? Bien.

Conversational Chinese (Mandarin)
French
Bahasa Indonesia
Thai

Actually, I was speaking of UP. We had to take 12 units, not six, of Espaņol. That was the old (or should I say older?) curriculum. Later, I believe, students had to take six units of Filipino, thereby decreasing the units of Espaņol. Then Espaņol disappeared altogether as a requirement.

Muy, muy, muy......

oic. batch 2001 kasi ako eh 6 units lang ni-require sa min na Span :)
Then the curriculum after our batch changed radically pag pasok ng RGEP. Revised General educ program nakakalito buti 2001 ako pumasok

Muy, muy, muy......

Were these requirements or electives?

By the way, when I said Espaņol disappeared as a requirement, I meant that it was no longer a requirement for ALL students, regardless of course. Back in the 1970s, you had to take Espaņol, whether you were a business, engineering, architecture or whatever major.

Requirement sya talaga hindi sya elective or sa CFA batch 2001. Yung sa music, i am not certain bec we are not in talking terms anymore.
Nasa listahan sya ng 2001 curriculum ng CFA di ko alam sa ibang courses. 2001 curriculum differs from the 1979 curriculum dahil lang sa nadagdagan na units sa FA specifically sfa17 and sfa18.

But when the RGEP curriculum was approved in 2002 (which is university wide) some of my classmates shifted to that curriculum and they did not took up Span and exchanged the subject for other subjects on the Arts and Humanities domain.

On the other hand di ako nag shift doon so I still took up Span classes and old subjects like STS, Philo, SocSci's etc. (for short hindi ako tumakas and still took up GE subjects ng UP dating way back 1979. which i suppose is, hardcore?hehe) Some of my batchmates naman tinakasan yung mga subject na yon including Span by shifting to RGEP.

Pa ikot ikot na ako noh? Parang ikot jeep.
Pero...graduate na ako jan!!!! heheheh

Naku Ma'am. Take it from someone who was too short-sighted to take this language seriously. Knowing Spanish will serve you well later in life.

Latin! Yes!!!! 4 years in high school. Got good enough back then to hold real life converstions with my friends. By now, most of what I learned is gone........at least on the surface.

I hooked up with a few hs buddies not too long ago, and by the end of the day, little bits and pieces of latin crept into the conversation. Then a couple of years ago, I wento to Rome, and walked through the forum in the center of town. Big old blocks of marble, with words carved into them - and I could read most of 'em!!! Surprised the heck out of me, and the people next to me when I started reading the blocks out loud. They trailed me all around, asking me what the blocks said. Made for a really interesting day. Funny what hides in the back of your consciousness.

Isn't it amazing? buti na-remember mo pa, usually pag di kasi nagagamit yung language nakakalimutan.
