Salindunong 2020 draws Filipino professors across nation

(L-R) Filipino professors Mae Valerie Escalera (second ), Juliet Mandado (third), Fe Varona (fourth) and Arnel Noval (fifth) attend the conference in Iligan, putting premium on Filipino language.

Just as cultivating national identity is imperative, so is relearning a thing or two of the significant developments around the national language—Filipino, that sent professors to the Salindunong 2020: 13th Pambansang Kumperensiya sa Filipino (National Conference of Filipino).

Themed “Mga Hamon at Bisyon sa Posisyon sa ika-21 siglong edukasyon,” CTU Main College of Arts and Sciences (CAS) academics—-Dr. Fe Varona, Dr. Juliet Mandado, Mae Valerie Escalera and Arnel Noval—joined others on February 26  to February 28, 2020 at the Mindanao State University Iligan State University (MSU-IIT).

More importantly, Noval presented his paper—“Wika ng Pangangampanya: Pagsusuri sa Mga Tanawing Pangwika ng Cebu sa Panahon ng Eleksyon”— which implied the usefulness of bilingualism or multilingualism in political ads.

The annual conference seeks to update Filipino instructors on relevant issues concerning Filipino and other languages.

Dr. Mandado reiterated in a statement that such challenges are those which necessarily alter the perspectives of Filipinos toward providing solutions for the common good. rmmm/ccmr
