game show host gets too homey and uses pure Visaya in school game show....

Really, I have nothing against our very own Visayan dialect; in fact, that's what I use much of the time. However, hearing it for hours boomed over the microphone by someone who was hosting the event was, to me, the opposite of teaching students to improve on their use of the English language. The said host felt so familiar and homey that the whole time she sounded like she was giving directions to illiterates or to those who have never gone to school and know no English. Why? What is this teaching the kids on the said school? They are playing games all right, but these people can understand instructions and comments in simple English. Couldn't we at least put someone there who can do this? It's a school, and a private school at that. Let us hope that schools will extend better learning environment for the kids even when they are into games.For as long as the kids are on campus, I think it is still the school's responsibility to provide a good learning environment to its students. It does not do any good for these students to be hearing the language that we all use at home and in the streets. It is highly expected that the school should give the kids the kind of education that improves and not diminishes the students' capabilities.
