“Wikang Yaman: Kuwento at Kuwenta,” the first-ever language storytelling event in Asia returns this January

Children’s storybook-lovers and Philippine literature enthusiasts, rejoice!

The first-ever treasure language storytelling event in the Philippines and in Asia is returning to educate and to entertain audiences for the second time around this 2020!


The Department of English of the University of Santo Tomas (UST) and members of the UST English Language Studies Society (UST-ELSSOC) renews “Wikang Yaman: Kuwento at Kuwenta” (WYKK). WYKK is a treasure language storytelling event that aims to recognize and celebrate the diversity of Philippine languages through acting and storytelling.


For this year, famous Philippine folklores and legends will be narrated by actors who speak fluent Philippine languages (e.g., Waray, Ilocano) before translating them to English in line with their theme “Embracing Languages Through Enchanting Stories.”
