As my internship has come to an end, I reflect on my CAPI experience in this podcast.
In this podcast, I talk about the fascinating and rich linguistic context of the Philippines. To demonstrate the stark variations between some of the languages and dialects, you will hear excerpts of my Filipino co-workers speaking in their mother tongue. Thank you for listening!
This blog post is about my daily ride to work – the Jeepney. The Jeepney is an iconic mode of transportation in the Philippines with a rich history. In this short post, I discuss why I am a fan of the Jeepney, its history, Jeepney art and some of its downfalls. Finally, I share some tips on how to ride a Jeepney in case one of you curious souls decides to jump on one when you visit the Philippines.
In this podcast, I interview my colleague Myleen who is Ifugao. The Ifugaos are an indigenous group from Northern Luzon. In this short interview, Myleen talks about Ifugaos’ traditions and beliefs, the preservation of Indigenous knowledge and culture in her community and some of the current issues faced by indigenous people in the Philippines.
If you are thinking about doing a CAPI internship and you are unsure where you should be based, this podcast is for you! I have now been interning in the Philippines for 2 months and decided to share five reasons why I think you should consider doing an internship in the Philippines. Keep in mind that the reasons I discuss are very subjective, being based on my past and present experiences. Nevertheless, I am hoping this may be useful for the people at home who are roaming the blogs and podcasts trying to figure out which internship would be best suited for them. Hopefully, this podcast will give you some useful insights on the upsides of interning in the Philippines.
