English This Way ensures mastery of the English language through:
Providing a comprehensive study of the structure, usage, and grammar of the English language
Giving ample discussions of nouns, pronouns, adjectives, verbs, adverbs, prepositions, conjunctions, and sentences
Involving pupils in discovering for themselves grammar rules and patterns through numerous examples culled from real-life situations
Articulating the skills to be acquired in each lesson
Facilitating ensuing evaluation
Integrating values and skills in the different subject areas as opposed to piecemeal and fragmented instruction, for language skills are integral to other subject areas
Utilizing different fun strategies, such as comic strips, dramatizations, puzzles, and drawing exercises
Dr. Ernesto Y. Sibal was one of the few Filipinos in academic publishing who can irrefutably lay claim to these three titles—Patriot, Pioneer and Innovator. A staunch patriot, Dr. Sibal fiercely advocated the vision of designating Filipino-authored books for young Filipino learners. This vision was enabled by the establishment of Alemar’s Bookstore in 1958, and through the foresight and drive of Alegria Rodriguez, who shared in the vision of her husband, she helped galvanize then fledgling Alemar's Bookstore as the place to go for textbooks and school needs, propelling it to become the first established bookstore chain in the country.
