To read, write

Michael L. Tan /
I’ve been working on a paper to present in Dipolog, where the Reading Association of the Philippines is holding a convention to share insights on how reading can be taught and promoted. Because it’s the sesquicentennial of Jose Rizal’s birth, the organizers wanted papers linked to Rizal, so I chose to look at one of Rizal’s essays, “On the New Orthography of the Tagalog Language,” published in La Solidaridad in 1890.
