10. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
I like the way we examined and reflected upon the literature and poems during class to understand meanings behind the story itself.
everything especially the short stories and the books that we were required to read.
I enjoyed reading poems/stories that Filipino writers have written in the past. Through the readings, I have learned more and have a better understanding of the Philippine culture.
Some aspects that I like the best was, how in each class we as a class read a story and discuss what we read about and our opinions.
Same preparing for dramafest and group discussion.
Group work and the teacher giving examples and connecting it to her own personal life.
class interaction.
The Poem of Dr. Jose Rizal
I enjoyed reading and discussing short stories with the class. I also enjoyed the small activities we did in class.
Reading the different types of short stories.
11. My overall evaluation of this course is...
that it is a very educational class especially for those who are enthusiastic about the Filipino culture and those who wish to major or minor in ethnic cultures. There was lot of info during the semester and it was great to reflect upon each story given as it was a writing intensive class.
overall experience, it was a fun class and i couldn't say anything more. Ate syd is one of those instructor who knows how to get close to her students and make them feel welcomed.
This course helps one understand how the Philippine culture has evolved through the years and why some still follow the beliefs of long ago.
If I had to take the class again, I WOULD. I really enjoyed the class and faced my fears in the drama fest, and I really enjoy the Filipino literature story's.
Very good teacher, she enjoys teaching and that's what makes the class fun and easy. I recommend anyone who needs humanities, writing intensive, for liberal arts degree take her class you will not regret it. you will find this class your favorite and wont want to miss a class at all.

She is very smart
This class is awesome! I've learned a lot about Philippine literature and read so many great poems and short stories by famous authors. Everyone became very close with each other, especially when we were rehearsing for Drama Fest.
Great class!
All the students that I meet became close and Im gonna miss Sydneys classes. Wish she could and add more FIL classes

12. Other comments:
I recommend the class for future students especially those who have space for an extra class or who need a writing intensive class to fulfill graduation needs.
I would highly recommend other students to take FIL 101, FIL 102, and FIL 261 with Sydney Villegas.
The course didn't feel like I was alone, at the end of the course everyone became close because of class discussions, and the drama fest.
it was great class
I'm going to miss this class. Ate Sydney is the best! :)
