Summary, Conclusion and Recommendation
Nigeria adopts English Language as its official language due to many reasons. Of course the principal reason cannot be divorced from ethnic linguistic diversities and the major ethnic languages are Hausa/Fulani in the North, Ibo in the East and Yoruba in the West. English is the language of government, institutions and businesses transaction in the country. It then stands to reason, therefore, that one must have a thorough grasp of the language in both its spoken and written forms. Nigeria therefore remains blessed with a language that is meeting her national aspirations, one that is well advanced and embraced universally, English language that is on this premise is hinged, the various governments, local, state and federal attachment of great importance to the teaching and learning of English language in the educational institutions of learning.
English language is one of the most powerful literary tools developed to a tremendous level, vivid and accurate records of our heroes both living and dead, (Late Chief Obafemi Awolowo, Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe etc) may not have been possible without the use of English language. The language is powerfully employed in self expression as well as in literature, essays and letters.
English as a medium of instruction in higher studies and for internal and external examinations has remained unchanged. English language has for long been a unifying factor among the numerous language spoken in Nigeria today and it has done a lot of good. Wole Soyinka won the (1980) noble prize for literature which is a thing of pride and joy to the entire black continent. If Wole Soyinka had written all his books in Yoruba, he certainly would not have won the noble laureate prize. It is therefore not surprising that much emphasis is placed on the teaching and learning of English language. English language is used in all ramification of the nation’s educational system, but the emphasis notwithstanding, the performances of students in English language is not encouraging.
1.2 PROBLEM OF THE STUDY
Most students find it difficult to express themselves in some given situations. This is because they lack the rudimentary knowledge that is in English language. Elements which are vital for sentence construction such deficiency includes the ability of the students concerned to recognize the varying slots in the structure of the English Language.
This problem is more touching and alarming when one considers the percentage of students who fail the English language in secondary schools. It is devastating when one discovers that a student’s linguistic expression of his thought is universally considered as invaluable communication tool in all his transactions the situation becomes more poignant when it is considered that a student’s competence and proficiency in English language expression are always regarded as valuable assets. Since these will create effective ability in all the individuals discipline in the school and in the use of English language itself. Therefore, it is expected that at each level or class in the school, each student should be able to express his or herself proficiently in English language both in written and oral work with an academic performance that is at least related and appropriate to such level.
It is in regard to improving on the above difficulties that many writers have stressed the fact of spoken language coming first in the learning of a language which the mastery of it is carried over to the written language. Wilkin (1974) said that in recent years it has been argued on both linguistic and psychological grounds that spoken English should be the principal objective in the language teaching in the face of these observations it becomes necessary to find out the factors affecting the proficient teaching of spoken English, its vocabulary and that of sentence structure.
