Introduction

1.1Background of the study

The English language has been accorded with high status in the nation’s educational system where it is a school subject as well as the medium of instruction from the last three (3) years of primary to the tertiary level. The overall aim is for every Nigerian citizen to possess a reasonable degree of competence and proficiency in English to be able to effectively shoulder national responsibilities in the task of nation building. Education, in Nigeria, is considered synonymous with a good command of the language. According to Banjo, if educated man is defined in Nigeria as one who has had at least secondary education then no Nigerian who speaks no English can be regarded as educated. English bestows some status on those who speak it fluently. It is no longer viewed as a temporarily borrowed language but has been accepted as part of our linguistic property by the majority of Nigerians. We often use it with creativity and ebullience, which spring from a confident sense of ownership, the fact that it is not our mother tongue notwithstanding. There is no better linguistic candidate for national integration, unity and identity than the English language. No Nigerian language can be considered as a useful tool for this herculean task. Nigeria, a great country with its over 520 languages, no doubt, comprises several nations. For national cohesion, unity and social stability, however, the imperative of evolving a common (national) language is urgent. Unfortunately, none of the indigenous languages has been able to successfully harmonize or stabilize the country and our linguistic diversity rather than being a blessing has been regarded by many as a curse

It is worthy to note that in spite of these numerous languages, only 65 have alphabets for writing and only 120 have texts written in them. This means that most of the Nigerian languages do not have the capacity to take up the challenges posed by proper language planning and engineering. It is easy to deduce why the English language carried the burden of the Nigeria language policy because it serves the needs of a multi-lingual country that is bereft of an indigenous official language. As laudable as the goal of the English language teaching is, it has its challenges and problems. Based on this the researcher wants to investigate the utilization of language activities in the teaching and learning of English language in secondary school

Statement of the problem

Many writers have expressed dismay at the students’ linguistic and communicative incompetence. No wonder, the seemingly fallen standard in our educational system is attributed primarily to our linguistic failure, since all education is education in language. The two important factors that affect the development of English in Nigeria and in any second language situation is the linguistic environments in Nigeria and the quality of teaching. The first factor is derived from the interference from the native languages and other languages in contact. Problems emanating from this factor are referred as interlingual problems. The second problem points to the teacher who is the pivot on which teaching and learning process depends for success. Whether the problem is inter-language or intra-language problem, an enormous responsibility revolves around the teachers of English in Nigeria

Scope and limitation of the study

The scope of the study covers the utilization of language activities in the teaching and learning of English language in secondary school in obio akpor local government area. The researcher encounters some constraints which limit the scope of the study namely:

The research material available to the researcher is insufficient, thereby limiting the study

The time frame allocated to the study does not enhance wider coverage as the researcher has to combine other academic activities and examinations with the study.

Insufficient fund tends to impede the efficiency of the researcher in sourcing for the relevant materials, literature or information and in the process of data collection (internet, questionnaire and interview).
