This study is a descriptive and exploratory reflexivity paper that intended to explore the idea of service learning (SL) in the context of service learning and language courses. It also intended to link the application of service learning as a progressive means of language learning. With these intentions, the researchers, conducted a service learning program in an alternative learning system(ALS) classes in the Philippines where they explored the ideas of service learning vis-à-vis language learning. It was found out how service learning is not only a good way to hone sociability and genuine concern for others but also a means to authentically learn academic matters including language and communication. It was concluded that in the process of doing service learning, there must be breeding of service providers and that it should be introduced in the educational curriculum.
