The MTB-MLE Team presented a paper entitled Philippine MTB-MLE: A Close Look at Policy-in-Context at the First International Conference on Language, Culture and Communication held at DLSU Dasmarinas last July 10-12, 2014.

In line with the conference theme “Language Teaching in Mother Tongue – Based Education in the 21st Century”, the team tackled how the nature and status of the mother tongue as a medium of instruction are related to the challenges and strategies in the implementation of the MTB-MLE program in different language contexts.
