Functional Literacy and Contextual Learning Theories Applied to English Language Learning

Date: Thursday, November 19th, 2009 Time: 4:20 PM - 5:50 PM

Speaker: Amihan April C. Mella-Alcazar

Dr. Mella-Alcazar, who speaks six languages, will explain how the Philippines achieved its high level of English through the application of two theories of learning: the functional literacy theory and the contextual learning theory. She will use her own experience of learning Japanese to illustrate these two theories.

Since 2006, Dr. Mella-Alcazar has been Adjunct Professor for International Business and Asian Business Systems at the Asian Institute of Management, Southeast Asia's premier management school.
