CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

1.1 Research background

English language is considered one of the most widely spoken languages all over the world. Although it comes second to Mandarin in the total number of speakers, it is widely spread compared to other languages. English is the official language of 53 countries in the world, more than 750 million people speak it either as a native or second language More than 196 have English as an official language. In addition to that English will give you more opportunities in speaking, communicating effectively whenever or wherever you go abroad, enabling you to have wide opportunities in looking for jobs and business one day. English will make you more desirable to employers. It will also provide wide access to knowledge in all its meanings and shapes. Besides, more than 53% of the world Web Sites and Internet, computer use English language, and this absolutely show the importance of it, beside that it is the language of science, using it in education and scientific research. It is a global language and has wide uses including also the fields of Diplomacy, Tourism and Aviation, many references and textbooks in Universities worldwide are written in English language. Sudan has witnessed general deterioration in the standard of English language. This can be seen clearly via the students marks in English language, the teachers' observations and the performance of the students in English language in the classroom, etc. The weakness of English language took place as a result of a variety of factors e.g. Teachers low qualification, students low motivation for learning English language, the absence of literature from the English language syllabus and inadequate school environment. Among these the school environment in Sudan is the focus of this research. No doubt that there is a strong bond between school environment and language learning because environment is like a motor that facilitates the language acquisition. For instance, through good environment we can see the best achievement of a language learning and teaching. Hence the researcher suggests that literature school environment can never be separated from any level of language learning. Therefore, if school environment was under any reasons separated from a language, this would cause a big damage in the learning process. Therefore, learning English involves many factors that would affect the process of learning positively or negatively; learning environment comes on the top.
