Excellent course and wonderful instructor! I would definitely recommend taking Filipino and taking Tita Letty for Filipino!
Tita Letty was a great Filipino teacher. However she wasted quite a bit of time talking in the beginning of the class. Also some days I felt that we reviewed the same thing. I really wanted to improve my 'Filipino conversation skills' but dialogue improvement exercises were limited. Tita Letty should incorporate more speaking so that by the end of Fil 202, students can hold a conversation. Other than that Tita Letty is a kind, warm, and generous person. She loves her students and it shows during class.

Tita Letty is a good instructor, only thing she needs to do a little better is return our work back before exams and quizzes. Overall she is a good instructor.
I just think there were miscommunication with the officers with our class for Katipunan matters. This course was extremely difficult for me because it was all in filipino.

I've had Tita Letty as an instructor for 1.5 years, I couldn't ask for any other person to teach me tagalog than her. I dont know any professor that is as caring as her towards students. She is almost like a second mother to all of us, and I can say that on behlf of the class because I'm sure they feel the same way.

I LOVE FILIPINO language classes! This is my best class ever! This is the reason behind why I want to minor and possibly major in Philippines Language and Literature.
-- snipped --
Although I am enjoying Tita Letty's method of teaching the Filipino language ancd culture, there are some things that can be improved. First of all, although speaking in Tagalog most of the time is a great way if being accustomed to the language, I believe that my fellow classmates who are not native Tagalog speakers are having difficulties catching up. One evidence of this is that they are responding in English instead of utilizing their Tagalog skills. This is due to not having enough grammar and structure practice. This is where I think needs emphasis in future 300-level classes. I believe that we are going through the readings way too fast. Last semester, when I had FIL 302 with Kuya Jovanie, we only went through one lesson/article ("leksyon") per week. On Tuesday classes, we would review the story and go through ideas, concepts, vocabulary, and structure that was present in the class. On Thursday classes, we would review the story, have a discussion of the story in Tagalog, learn the important concepts that arise from the stories, and have a game in class about the story (trivia/grammar/vocabulary) where the class is split in half and people on the winning team will have 1 point extra towards their sulatin or exam. I always looked forward to the weekly games, and it is an incentive for students to use Tagalog and read the stories without the feeling pressured to do so. In addition, I believe that the whole FIL 301 course was structured around the book itself. Both of the exams, the three essays (sulatin), and the final paper is about what the stories in the book is about. Although the book encompasses on Filipino culture, I believe that we should also focus on current events, grammar and structure, and modern Filipino issues (although this would match FIL 302 more, since 302 is more towards contemporary topics). Furthermore, since the Final Paper and Final Oral are worth 40% of the grade, I wish that it was assigned earlier in the semester (by Week 8, or around that time). I currently feel rushed since most other professors are assigning final presentations and projects at this time, and it takes time to write 10 pages (with multiple drafts) on a full schedule. Last semester, we had an oral presentation on our research topic, and write a paper for it, which made completing both of them easier. Kahit unang semestre niyo lang pong nagturo ng FIL 301, masaya pa rin ang klase, at maraming salamat Tita Letty sa isang mabuting semestre!
It was too advance from 202 to 301. This course should be taught in the upper level Filipino class.

Out-of-class activities should not be a part of course grade. There are two required activities which account for 20% of the grade (two full letter grades). This is biased toward young, single students, especially those whom live in the dorms. The activities were held on non-class days. If they are required in the future, I highly recommend conducting them during class hours. While these activities may teach a bit about the culture, they are nearly useless for learning the language. If I speak to a Filipino, I don't expect to break into a song or start quoting movies. Completely unnecessary. Please remove these from the courses.
Tita Pagkalinawan is a very knowledgeable professor that is very understanding and willing to put time aside if extra help is needed. Over all a great professor and I hope to take her again next semester.
Leticia Pagkalinawan is an excellent teacher, who knows a lot about her course. She is one of the most patient and understanding teacher that I know. She goes above and beyond to meet the needs of her students. As for me, I have such a busy schedule with such a complicated work schedule, and she tries to still fit me in where I am available. Awesome professor!

Tita Letty is very knowledgable about the Filipino language and culture. Her passion for teaching and her students are clearly visible and its great to see educators that display this type of passion. We would have fun in class! On the other hand, Tita Letty was very organized and had a lot planned for class, sometimes the amount of material we learn can be very overwhelming. But other than that, I enjoyed myself in this class.

Thank you Tita for teaching my last Filipino class. Take care and I hope you have a wonderful day.
Maraming Salamat, Tita Letty sa lahat ng ginagawa mo para sa mga estudyante mo.
I enjoyed 202 better. Dr. Pagkalinawan is getting the hang of teaching at Manoa, she is really progressing to be a great instructor for such a broad topic.
More activities!
A practice study guide would be much useful and motivating to study. Textbook was hardly used.
She is a very good instructor and i would to totally recommend her class
Salamat tita sa inyong lahat ang ginagawa mo para sa akin at mga kaklase ko. Sobra pinakabait mo. Magkita tayo sa 301. Salamat po tita! Ingat ka diyan. God bless
Tita Lety is a passonate teacher and person. She is patient with her students and continues to show a kind demeanor, which is not easy with a rowdy class.
In all, I learned more on my culture by learning the language and it was all possible by Tita Letty so I thank her
Please allow more time for preparation for Dramafest and Songfest
Tita Leti is a great teacher !
Tita Letty was very understanding to those who had difficulties learning the material. I appreciated the fact that she always made herself readily available to us if in the case we had any questions. The 200 level Filipino classes were very good and I would recommend these classes to those who are required to take a foreign language.
No comments.
Maraming Salamat Po Tita Letty para sa magandang semester sa Filipino 202. I have learned to love and have a high interest in retaining my Filipino language. I have been speaking more Filipino lately with family and friends, which makes me feel good. I loved all of the activities we've done in class because it was fun and educational. I feel confident in using what I've learned from Filipino 201 and Filipino 202 into my future career, where I hope to help other Filipinos do well in life. Maraming maraming Salamat Po uli. Ingat, God Bless and keep in touch Tita Letty -Kim Ramos :)

Everyday was a day of fun and laughter thank you so much for a great semester!!
We did not get any feedback on how we were doing throughout the course because she never returned any of our homework papers...so we get slammed on the quizzes and tests!! She is very inconsistent with her expectations of us...sometimes she is strict and threatens us to deduct points for late assignments, and other times she does not even collect our homework! I asked her for additional assignments early on in the semester so I could practice the material. She said she would give us more assignments so we could get feedback on how we were doing, and know if we got the concepts. But she had so many personal things going on with her that she hardly assigned us anything at all... In addition she did not stick with the syllabus and we all never know what was due when, and assignments were just thrown at us all of a sudden. In the end of the semester she dumped all this work and lessons on us because she had fallen so behind schedule. This class was very poorly organized, and overall she is just so disorganized that I don't even have any desire to take this class seriously.,, I'm switching out next semester to study something else for my language requirement. This class was a total waste of my time.
This class is really easy, especially with Tita Letty as the teacher. We learned a lot in this class and even if sometimes it did not make sense at first, we were still able to grasp the concept. The teacher explained everything in depth, and now I have a stronger understanding of this language.
There should be more class activities that allow us to have hands on learning. Maybe going up to the board and writing sentences or having games that deal with writing the most verbs or something like that. Also, maybe pairing up strong speakers with not so strong speakers and having them learn from one another.
The instructor's performance was sub-par. The material was not effectively conveyed to the class, leaving many of the students lost in the dark. The instructor was not very open to thinking outside of the box; her way was the way it should be learned. The instruction was very cookbook, leaving little room for freedom, creativity, and further application of the lessons. It was also common for assignments to change at the last minute, leaving students scrambling to get things done and thus affecting the quality of what was submitted. On the plus side, Tita Letty provided good handouts and made herself available for assistance during office hours. Because of what little was learned in class, much time needed to be spent teaching myself the lessons from the book or other resources. I could have saved $1000 in tuition by not taking the course and instead learning straight from the book(s). Overall, although the supplemental material provided was good, the method of instruction and organization/preparation was poor. The course proved to be more frustrating than it needed to be.
Very good teacher that i would recommend to others. She does explain to us that it is important to constantly listen and hear the tagalog language but it was hard for me to understand some instructions that was said in tagalog.

I appreciate Tita Letty's flexibility and willingness to help us students. One thing to improve on is making the assignments clear and having more structure to class time. If possible, follow the schedule provided at the beginning of the semester. Require at least one student-teacher meeting to go over progress.
:)
Tita Letty does a great job of teaching Filipino culture and values. I appreciate her lesson handouts/packets because they really helped me to understand the grammatical structures and conjugation patterns. Tita is also caring and provides a comfortable classroom setting that makes learning more enjoyable for each of us, and provides many different activities, such as games and movies, that make learning our language fun!
Great professor and very helpful!

Professor Pagkalinawan is by far the best language teacher I have ever had. She not only teaches the language but also the culture. I think when learning a language it is important to be able to grasp the local customs and culture so you know where certain words get their roots and meanings. I feel sorry for the students that do not apply themselves because Professor Pagkalinawan provides all the tools that are vital to become a fluent speaker of Filipino. She puts her students first, always. She is a dedicated instructor of the Tagalog language and if it wasn't for her mastery of the Filipino and English Languages then I wouldn't be able to speak Filipino today. I am so grateful that the University of Hawaii finally employed a professor with her skillset. The other professors should take note of Professor Pagkalinawan's methods and incorporate them into their lessons. Professor Pagkalinawan is a true asset to the Filipino Language program. Thank you UH and maraming maraming salamat po Tita Letty! Ingat po.

she is very knowledgeable and she has a passion for teaching this subject but sometimes she going off subject. Shes very nice and understanding. Great teacher.
Tita Letty is very passionate about she teaches. I would love to take a class from her again!

Leticia was a good teacher overall this semester. Although, sometimes we; as a class would have a hard time grasping her teaching methods. She was kind of hard to understand, some of the things she taught us were sometimes unclear. She is always ready to answer questions.

Professor Pagkalinawan is an excellent professor and teaches the Filipino language with enthusiasm. I have learned a lot being with her for an entire year. The only problem I had was the time management during class, but although we were behind schedule I still learned a lot. I would definitely recommend her to other students.
Thanks for caring Tita Letty!
Great! Enjoyed every bit of class! Definitely THE most memorable class I've ever taken at UHM :)
Excellent teacher and fun class!
I love Tita Letty. Since I been taking this class for about 2 years just having her for my last year has been a blast. She has really helped me enhance my ability to speak the language even though I'm not that good but I felt even though I'm not that good she encouraged me to do my best and as long as I put effort into my work she was always there to guide me and she really understand where Im coming from learning a second language is really difficult and I think she understands that.
I think the level of difficulty for this course can be raised. I would like to see more grammar and vocabulary exercises. Tita Letty is a more than competent instructor who is considerate toward her students.
The instructor spoke to us a lot in Filipino, and while that is a good thing, more effort should be made to get the students to speak Filipino, rather than listening to the instructor speak the language. I would highly recommend FIL 202 be an English blackout course. Meaning that students would not be allowed to speak English, but only Filipino, so as to get the students more practiced in speaking the language. Other than that the course was very good.
Maraming maraming salamat Tita Letty sa lahat-lahat, mamiss kita at ang mga kaibigan ko sa klase.
I loved Tita Letty. She's one of the few professors that I've had a pleasure to have in my whole college career that I felt that actually cared for her students. She's very enlightening and makes the course challenging yet fun at the same time. Any student who takes her class should consider themselves lucky to be in the presence of someone that is absolutely wonderful in my eyes. Maraming na maraming salamat po. :)

I love having Tita Letty as my teacher. I really wanted her to teach 201 so I could be in her class!
I love Tita Letty! She is one of the kindest teachers I've had. She truly loves to share her knowledge of the Filipino language. My only suggestion is that Tita Letty show more assertiveness in the classroom. There were several students in the class that were a constant distraction to the lesson. They were constantly giggling and laughing, and would still not be quiet after being told to do so. Tita Letty is a great teacher, and I hope future students of Filipino come to appreciate her breadth and depth of knowledge as well as of the love she has for her students.
i recommend this instructor to anyone considering taking filipino.
Maybe more practice talking Tagalog in class. We could have used more conversation practice
This is my second semester with Tita Letty's Filipino class. I have 2 more semesters of language and I will take her 2 more times and recommend her to my friends. She is the best Filipino instructor by far! If there are any students who badmouth her it is because they don't apply themselves and blame their failure on the teacher which is unfair.
I love Tita Letty's class & I want to take her for all my years of Filipino. Her class was interactive and encouraging. I'm not fluent in Filipino yet but Tita Letty has kept me encouraged && I am determined to learn it!!
Please teach FIL 201 next semester!
Overall, Tita Letty was good. She seemed to be very well versed in the subject and was very nice and approachable. A couple of things I would say to improve on: sometimes she would go into some topics that seemed to be at a high level (like you would have to be a native speaker to know it), so perhaps the lesson could be more foreigner-friendly. Other than that though, she was good overall. I wouldn't mind taking her again. Also, Katipunan officers should be more approachable and actually reply to any questions and emails sent to them. Maybe even look into concerns or take suggestions from the Katipunan members. I've been in the club one year so far and not once have I heard them ask how the events were or take suggestions on how to improve them.
I enjoyed your class. It work load was reasonable and easy. It was great having you as a tita :)

I love tita Letty. I feel not rushed in learning this language and she does a really good job taking time to help me understand what we where doing. Im always able to go to her for anything and I just think she really feels for her students. SHe did a really good job this semester.
great teacher, hope all your plans go well, hope to see yah next semester, at least for my final semester.
-- snipped --
I had an awesome class with an awesome teacher. Tita Letty really cared for her students, she'll knows when to go forward or when we. needed more examples or practice to understand the next topic. Salamat Tita..hopefully we have you for next semester. Take care.
Tita Letty is a kind, warm, and caring individual. Initially, I was quite indimidated by her and didn't know how to approach difficulty days. After I was able to talk to her outside of the classroom, she has been a great mentor to me ever since. She really cares about her students and it is visible to see that she really does want the best for them - something I have not really seen out of many teachers in my whole college career thus far. I would hope she teaches FIL 202 in the fall, but if that is not the case, I wish her the best of everything for whatever comes her way. Mahal na mahal kita, Tita!~ Maraming salamat para sa EVERYTHHING!~

Our instructor immersed us into the language by speaking it for most of the class and encouraged us to speak it when we had the opportunity (ex: asking a question). What was also great was that she included games that made the two hour class fun and productive.
Tita Letty is a great teacher!
Tita Letty is a good instructor, but I think because she is new she was having a hard time settling in. I think I didn't see her at her best, but she was good for her first semester here.
Tita Letty was very friendly and open to students' suggestions. She was always willing to spare time for me when I needed help. It would have been nice if we had more writing exercises in class so we could practice the sentence structures we learned. Tita Letty could sidetrack a little bit sometimes and there might have been a way to utilize the time we had more effectively. Overall she was a very dedicated teacher and I learned a lot from her.
Very friendly to students in class and out of class during her office hours.
Prof. Leticia Pagkalinawan was very qualified to teach this course. She is a native speaker of the Filipino language and explained everything there is to know to her new Filipino language takers like myself. If a student rated her poorly it was due to their (the students) excessive absences and unwillingness to learn. Prof. Leticia Pagkalinawan always welcomed students outside of class during office hours and non-office hours as well. She went above and way beyond the duties of a UH Professor to inspire, teach, and share the vast knowledge of the Filipino language and culture to us students. She is a true asset to the University of Hawaii. I hope other students have the priviledge to take a class with her in the future.

I think for her first year at UHM, Tita Letty has done a great job in adjusting. At times, Tita Letty seemed a bit disorganized with the course schedule, but I think that was more a matter of adjusting to the Filipino program here at UH. Tita Letty is a great teacher. She is very knowledgeable of the Filipino language and is very willing to help each student gain better competency in speaking and writing in Filipino. If I continue Filipino next semester, I will surely take it with Tita Letty.
Tita Letty seems to be a good teacher. At times, though, it kind of felt that the course assumes that you know the Filipino already. I understand the idea to immerse the students in the language, but it really would be helpful to have a translation in English once in a while to have some sort of reference. And I have found some vocab on tests/assignments that were never formally introduced to the student. Other than that though, the course was great. Lots of fun. And maybe this isn't the place to say it, but having Katipunan participation required is not cool. I think, sure, maybe the drama/songfest stuff and the picnic could be required. But I really do think having to go to all those meetings and do all that extracurricular stuff should NOT be necessary. People are busy, we have lives to live. Not everyone can do all of this stuff (especially since it's never said in the beginning). It also doesn't help that the leadership in the club doesn't respond quickly enough and tells people AT THE LAST MINUTE! Seriously, make it optional and just give extra credit for doing it. Don't hold people's grades hostage just to get everyone involved. We're adults: let people decide if they want to be active in a club that everyone is forced into.

Good first semester at UH, though there is always room from improvement. Maybe more activities outside of the worksheets or textbook.
