The Council for Teaching Filipino Language and Culture (CTFLC) is now signing up prospective test takers of the California Subject Examination for Teachers (CSET) in Filipino for an on-line review which was piloted on November 2009 Exam.  Since the first CSET:Filipino was administered in November 2006, CTFLC and the Language Acquisition Resource Center (LARC) at San Diego State University (SDSU) have conducted free review classes for three Saturdays preceding the scheduled examination. This project has provided support to teachers wanting to obtain a credential that will allow them to teach Filipino language in public schools.

The on-line review is FREE for the 26 August22 September 2024 test dates.  Participants who sign up and register will be able to access the on-line review materials (Domains: General Linguistics & Linguistics of the Target Language: Filipino) and post questions and comments to the on-line review facilitators: Dr. Atilio V. Alicio and  Dr. Ofelia C. Rayos.  Dr. Alicio (retired),  who facilitated the past review sessions, handled the Filipino courses at the University of California San Diego (UCSD) and San Diego State University (SDSU), while Dr. Ofelia C. Rayos teaches Filipino at Southwestern College and College Reading at both Southwestern College and Cuyamaca College.

There continues to be a need for credentialed teachers in Filipino in California because of the growing Filipino youth population in the state that feels the need to learn their heritage language and culture.  CTFLC hopes that the on-line test preparation for CSET:Filipino will encourage more teachers to take the test and consequently obtain their credential.  The on-line review will make test preparation available to future teachers of Filipino not only in San Diego, but also to those in other places in California and the US.
