Additionally, former President Manuel Quezon, considered the Father of the National Language, was born on August 19, 1878.

In line with this, DepEd has released memo no. 24, series of 2016 to provide guidelines, objectives and sub-themes of 'Buwan ng Wika' celebration.

  • The objective of the celebration are the following:
  • Fully-implement Presidential Proclamation No. 1041
  • Encourage all government agencies and private sectors to be part of programs that raise language and civic consciousness
  • Show the importance of language which is better than the national development

The theme for the month is divided into four sub-themes which will serve as a guide in the weekly activities during the month of August:

a) Filipino: Wika ng Edukasyon at Kalinangan
b) Intektuwalisadong Wikang Pambansa, Wika ng Umuunlad na Bansa
c) Pagsasalin: Susi sa pagtamo at papapalaganap ng mga kaalaman at karunungan
