Mga sis, UP offers varied language classes. Meron silang German, Spanish, Italian, Portugese(not so sure on this). 2000 lang and fee for 10 session (yata, I cant really remember) every Saturday. You can inquire at the European Languages department at CAL. I cant remember the room number though. Pero the next cycle will start next year na kasi the last cycle for this year already started nung October or early November. :)

Yung Asian Language naman is at Asian Center sa Romulo. I inquired before if they offer Mandarin or Japanese. Unfortunately, they dont offer extramural classes anymore. Para sa mga UP students na lang yata offered yun. :)

Can anyone inform me pag nagreply sila tapos meron na ulit classes offered? Hehe! ;D Thanks! :)

Try going to China - its THE most effective!
I'm a product kasi of BLCU (Beijing Language and Culture University)

If not - try going to Berlitz?  Iba kasi if you're exposed eh..

Sis, how did you apply? Im planning to go to China next year pero Im still choosing if Xiamen or Beijing. Or maybe in Taiwan. Hehe! Mag-costing pa muna ako. Haha! :) Thanks! :D

@ dcharmed1:

Yep, it's College of Arts and Letters. I think the trunk line is 981-8500 then ask for the local number of their European Studies department. Or try this direct line pero Im not sure if it's correct: 928-7508.  ;)

^^Thanks for the info sis. I'll try calling CAL tomorrow. Sana suertehin ako. Hehe.

Actually, gusto ko rin yang Fookien kasi sa totoo lang, mas maraming gumagamit nyan at Cantonese. May nagsabi kasi sakin na mas maraming nakakaintindi nyan sa China at HK kesa Mandarin. How true ito?

Naku sis, hindi rin. It will depend on the people you interact with. Baka naman from Fujian province yung karamihan ng mga naka-interact nung nagsabi sayo.  ;)

HK kasi Cantonese talaga sila so it's either you speak in Madarin or Cantonese. China naman is a big country and madami silang dialect. Pero if you stay sa Xiamen or nearby places, Fookien will do. Pero if you go to other provinces, kailangan talaga marunong ka mag mandarin.  :)

Parang dito rin sa Pinas, may mga tao na ang alam eh yung dialect nila kaya di nakakapagsalita ng Tagalog pero naiintindihan nila yun...and vice versa.  ;D

@ *Tinnie*:

IMO, Japanese is easier in terms of speech. Sa written kasi they have 3 systems so kung di ka matyaga mag-aral, mahihirapan ka din. German naman is difficult in terms of the accent. Di ko kinaya! haha! :D

^^ i studied both. sa tingin ko, pareho lang naman sila. they have easy and difficult aspects. depende na lang sa interest mo. like sa akin, mas interested ako sa japanese culture so i excelled in japanese more than german. hanggang ngayon, basic level pa rin ako sa german kasi hindi pa ako ganun ka-interested sa kultura. will take time.

mas mahirap ang german grammar, gender and all the grammatical patterns. di kagaya sa japanese. feeling ko, isa sa pinakamahirap sa japanese ay kanji.

again, it will depend on your interests too :) goodluck!

Hmmm... kasi, i find japanese language cool and parang friendly ang approach, not to mention na i love watching animes talaga. Nahihirapan na kasi ako sa german  :'(

^ well, lahat halos ng kilala ko, anime ang reason bakit nag-aral ng japanese. ako naman ganun din, plus japanese drama. i think it's a valid reason for wanting to learn japanese :D as long as there is something that interests you in it, it shouldn't be too hard to learn. unlike yung mga napipilitan mag-aral ng isang language kasi required subject sa course nila or something, di ba?
