The national language has evolved for more than six decades now. From Tagalog-based Pambansang Wika to Pilipino. Tagalog-based and finally Filipino-based in all the languages including foreign languages like English and Spanish.

This study attempted to find out the effectiveness of modular instruction in Filipino I. The experimental method was used. For this study, the respondents were grouped into two as the experimental and the control groups. Both groups took the pretest and the posttest exams. The respondents of the study were all freshmen students of TIP Manila who were enrolled in Filipino 113. There were 60 matched participants in the study, 30 of them constituting the experimental group while 30 of the students represented the control group. The results of the pretest and the posttest of the two groups were gathered.
