Class Module Calling Mosquito as “Namok” in Tagalog Goes Viral

A certain netizen has posted the photo of a class module calling mosquito “Namok” in Tagalog elicits comments online.

A Facebook user named “Lakandupil Caparanga Garcia” has shared the photo of a self-learning module calling mosquito as “Namok” instead of what we used to call “Lamok”. The post garnered various reactions from the netizens.
