Thank you for the compliment. She's my niece. I wrote the syllabus. It's purpose is to give a speaking knowledge of Ilonggo and to explain its grammatical rules for teachers and non-Ilonggos, especially now that mother language is being used in early elementary grades in Western Visayas. We're planning to make syllabuses for more Philippine languages. (If I have the time and energy.)
