Impact of Using Bilingual Language during Discussion in Practical Research 2 to Learning of Grade 12 HUMSS Strand Students of Bestlink College of the Philippines, S.Y. 2019–2020
Bilingual teaching involves teaching content in two languages that every student understands. The use of two languages affects each student’s academic performance, and their grades may go up. Some of the students are not good at understanding the English language and it affects their academic performance. Bilingual teaching can help students to understand the teaching the teachers sing the first language. Bilingual teaching can help students to communicate with others. It can also give a perspective on cultural communication, which can increase globalization. The main objective of this study is to examine the impact of using bilingual language during a discussion in Practical Research 2 on the learning of Grade 12 Humanities and Social Sciences (HUMSS) Strand students of Bestlink College of the Philippines. A descriptive method of research was used in the study, and a survey questionnaire was used. The researchers chose the said research design because it is the appropriate technique to describe the situation and problem of the given topic. At the same time, it is the most helpful design that the researchers can use to gather the data. The researchers used the systematic type of probability sampling. Systematic sampling is often more convenient than simple random sampling, and it is easy to administer. The researchers also administered a survey questionnaire to different sections and selected Grade 12 HUMSS Strand students in Bestlink College of the Philippines. The respondents varied in terms of gender. Afterward, the result will be tailed, tabulated, and analyzed. The data gathered from 90 students were evaluated by the researchers. Based on the findings of the researchers, the level of understanding of the students was affected by the use of two languages in the discussion, with a composite average of 3.98. For student participation, the composite average was 4.03, with the verbal interpretation of “agree.” This result indicated that the students can participate by using bilingual language in the discussion. For learning, 4.06% of the respondents agreed that they will learn more by using bilingual language in the discussion. For self-confidence, 3.93% of the respondents agreed that they have self-confidence when using bilingual language during discussion. For understanding the lesson, 4.07% of the respondents agreed that they will learn more by using bilingual language in the discussion. Hence, the use of bilingual language can help the students improve their participation in Practical Research 2 subject. The researchers found that using bilingual language in the discussion can help the students improve their participation in Practical Research 2 subject. The researchers suggested being open to everyone’s ideas, always cooperate with the people around you, always be active, and do not hesitate to express your ideas.
