Phoenix Language Package Skill Builders for English Proficiency

The Phoenix Language Package: Skill Builders for English Proficiency (PLP: SEP) offers a development program designed to help high school students gain competence in English. Through mastery approach, the series aims to equip the learners with relevant real-life skills not only to meet the demands of the times but also to acquire enduring understanding, which leads to lifelong learning.

The worktexts can be used in two different ways:

  • As part of the lessons in the Communication Arts Program
  • As the main text in an intensive course for mastering the English language

The Worktext contains lessons, exercises, and activities that develop language skills through listening, speaking, grammar, and writing. It is organized into four units, each unit with several lessons labeled SBL (Skill Builders
in Language). Each SBL has three main components:

  • Entering the Chatroom focuses on listening and speaking.
  • Highlighting Grammar focuses on grammar usage and structure.
  • Using the Notepad focuses on writing skills and the mechanics and process in writing including spelling and vocabulary.

The exercises in each component follow the mastery approach to skill development —Starter, Reinforcer, and Challenger.

The Learning Guide, which is a sample for the teachers on how to guide their students, will help the students realize that the communication skills they learn and master are not just for the present but are for lifelong learning. Thus, goals are set so that lessons learned and skills mastered today are useful in the future.

The Syllabus presents a course map that allows teachers and coordinators to see the scope and sequence of each level “at a glance.” It also includes the values that are embedded in the lessons.

The PLP: SEP soundtrack is a creative add-on. We call it the Listen and Learn Channel, which is a CD for the tapescripts used in listening activities in each level.

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.
