Filipino Tapestry Audio Supplement
To accompany Filipino Tapestry, Tagalog Language through Culture
Rhodalyne Gallo-Crail and Michael Hawkins


This audio CD is a central component of the lessons in the textbook Filipino Tapestry, which offers an innovative approach to learning language by emphasizing the critical intersection of language and culture. Together, the book and CD provide activities and exercises that immerse beginning and intermediate students of the Filipino language in a variety of authentic situations to simulate an in-country experience. The audio CD contains clear, concise, authentic dialogues of native Filipino speakers. The tracks are designed to convey actual conversations in relevant cultural contexts.

Rhodalyne Gallo-Crail teaches Tagalog at Northern Illinois University and speaks the language natively. Michael Hawkins, who learned Tagalog by immersion in the Philippines, is assistant professor of Asian history at Creighton University.

An official language of the Philippines, Filipino is based on Tagalog, with elements of Spanish, English, and Chinese mixed in. The result is a rich, expressive language spoken in the Philippines and throughout the far-reaching Filipino diaspora. Filipino Tapestry offers an innovative approach to learning language by emphasizing the critical intersection of language and culture.
