Wikang Filipino: Gamitin at palaganapin
MERCY G. DULAS, Buguias, Benguet

The National Language Month is an annual celebration of Filipino as the national and widely spoken language in the country. It is a month-long celebration every August in public and private schools by virtue of Presidential Proclamation 1041 s. 1997.

This year’s theme is “Filipino: Wikang Saliksik” (Language of Research) and the celebration aims to fully implement the Presidential Proclamation 1041, s. 1997; to encourage various government agencies and private sectors to participate in different programs that aim to promote Filipino language and civic awareness; and to inspire many Filipinos towards the appreciation of the national language through active participation in various activities related to the Buwan ng Wika.

Ang tema ay kumikilala sa wikang Filipino bilang midyum sa paglikha at pagpapalaganap ng pambansang karunungan at kaunlaran. Sa pamamagitan ng tema, layon ng Komisyon sa Wikang Filipino na palaganapin ang wikang Filipino sa iba’t ibang larangan ng karunungan lalong lalo na sa agham at matematika.

Within the month of August, various Filipino-related activities, such as balagtasan, pagkukuwento, pagtula, pag-awit, and slogan making will be held in various schools nationwide in a bid to inculcate to the learners the value of the Filipino language, which is seldom used in schools due to the “mother tongue” medium which is being taught to learners from kindergarten to grade 3.
