Abstract

This paper focuses on the projects that promote the learning of Chabacano and its use in education. It provides information about the projects and offers a critical evaluation of the educational materials and the methodology from a constructivist point of view. The point of departure is the case of Cavite, which is compared with the projects in Cotabato and Zamboanga. The main problems in Cavite are the lack of educational materials and the lack of cooperation between the different actors committed to the promotion of Chabacano. However, the case study demonstrates the importance of grassroots activism for language revitalisation and that a heritage language can be promoted and preserved outside institutional language use. <b>Keywords:</b> Chabacano; educational materials; language learning; language revitalisation
