The dominant characteristics of Filipinos compared to those of a bamboo are: Flexible  ( the ability to bend without breaking) Filipinos can adjust to changing situations may they be easy or difficult. Filipinos can deal with different personalities as well that's why they are in many places of the world. They work in many types of industries such as manufacturing, farming, medicine, fashion, teaching, and many other more. They can learn different languages of different countries and adjust to the cultures in every country that they go to. The bamboo just bends and sways with the breeze and even if the wind get's stronger, it stands in its ground. It goes wherever the wind leads it to but it doesn't break.

2. Resilient (the ability to recover immediately from difficulties)      Filipinos may have some problems but they don't easily give up. They find ways to solve their problems. They do their best to get back on their feet when faced with problems. In the Philippines itself, Filipinos can deal with different kinds of problems flexibly and use their skills in many areas as well. This characteristic is being demonstrated during natural calamities. Filipinos may show sadness but they focus more on preparing for the future. As for a bamboo, it doesn't easily break when you bend it. It sways with the wind but it goes back to its original position as well. It has tensile strength that resists forced bending.

3. Social beings - Filipinos usually belong in a group. They spend time with friends and family in many ways especially during the holidays. They can spend time on their own at times but they prefer being with others to to enjoy or to mourn. As for a bamboo, it doesn't grow alone or very separately with others. A new shoot rises from one bamboo and grow very close to each other.

Because the characteristics of a molave are related to Filipinos. firm, resilient staunch, rising from the hillside and strong on its own fibre.

answer and Explanation:

As with any other typical country, the Philippines has gone through various societal processes— either political or economical in nature or the combination thereof — that define the current structure of its society. But unlike most of its neighboring countries, the Philippines is not “purely” oriental in a sense.

If the West-East Divide ever exists somewhere else in Asia, it is not evident that this country can be somewhere proximate to this demarcation.

For more than three centuries the Philippines had undergone the colonization of the Spaniards (the first Spanish contingents came to the Philippines in 1521). By virtue of the Treaty of Paris of 1898, the Philippines came under American jurisdiction as a result of Spain’s loss to America in the Spanish-America War in 1898. From 1941 to 1944, during the Second World War, the Philippines had to put up with the atrocities of the Japanese.

If the West-East Divide ever exists somewhere else in Asia, it is not evident that this country can be somewhere proximate to this demarcation.

The years of the Americans’ political settlement before and after the Second World War saw the emergence of a Democratic society (the Philippines is the first country in Asia to have adopted Democracy as a political system). Many other democratic institutions have been established as a result of the American-Philippine relation.

One of the salient impacts of the Americans to the Philippines is the education system which was structured and fashioned after American models. The current education system is an off-shoot of the system developed and exercised by a widely recognized group of American teachers in the early 1950’s called “Thomasites” (so-called after the ship “Thomas” with which they came to the country).

Up to these times, English is the main medium of instruction used in all levels in school. Whether this medium is effective for Filipino students or not have been a question extensively debated in many parts of the country. The efficacy of education relies on different aspects, and one of them is the language being used. But all had to come down to one thing: Globalization has become the decisive factor in asserting English as the primary medium to be used in schools.

The implication of this is multifold. An average tagalog-speaking first grader could have a trouble understanding, say, a mathematics subject taught in English while he, the student, in the first place is not yet basically familiar with that language (English) through which he is expected to learn that mathematics subject.

The inevitability of Globalization has “forced” the system to embrace an approach to education that at times contrary to the conservative tendencies of Filipinos. Could the Philippines’ literacy rate of 95%, a national average and one of the highest literacy rates in Asia, attest to the fact that environment-imposed (or globalization-imposed) system is really effective? Another interesting thing to note is that the Philippines is one of the largest English-speaking nations in the world.

These statistics speak for the ability of the Filipino people to adapt or adjust to an element foreign to their native environment. The Philippines’ education system basically conforms to the demands of Globalization.

Yet despite the modern trend in the Philippines’ educational process, the popularity of superstitions in most areas of the country is still pervasive. The belief in the Albularyo or quack-doctor still persists when it comes to treating diseases and some types of mental illnesses. “Sanib” or spirit-possession, belief to supernatural phenomena and to the existence of supernatural characters or spirits (such as “manananggal” which is a version of Dracula but only this is half-bodied, has a wing like that of a bat and has the ability to transform to different kinds of animals) and other superstitions are still incorporated into the culture of the Filipinos. There have been cases of mental disorder caused by drug abuse and depression being interpreted as punishment by a “white lady” (a wandering spirit of a dead lady) or “nuno sa punso” (literally, elf living in the mound of soil).

1) I think the reason why students get low academic performance in subjects that require the use of the native language and Filipino is that students specially the youth don't use much of their own language because foreign language looks more 'high class' or the one we call sosyal than their own language. And because of that thinking (pag-iisip) they use foreign language more than their own, making foreign language as their 'default' language.

3) Don't force yourself to study more if you can't or your tired. Give yourself some rest then if you think your ready to study the language, review first the previous lesson/s that you studied before studying new lesson/s. If your really not sure if the things that you learned/studied will stay in your brain, don't force yourself to memorize those things, write them down in an organized notebook in a way that it doesn't looks complicated. Also take down example sentences (and questions) that are relevant to the lesson you are studying. If you think your going too far and can't keep up, pause then review the things that you've already went through before continuing the lesson. (I've already studied around 8 languages and only 2 of those language I can speak because I didn't execute the things that I typed above)
