CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

1.1 Background to the Study

Looking at its widespread use globally, such as in economics, politics, culture and sports, the English language has a unique function and lineage among the world’s major languages. Without this international language, our world today will appear unable to connect and communicate. Also, the mastery of English is deemed as having an edge and can bring a lot of advantages to its speakers. Those who work as civil employees in government agencies have a strong desire to master the English language to perform their duties and tasks more efficiently.

In the same vein, Universities are one of the government sectors where employees must be fluent in the use of this worldwide language. The attitude of students towards the learning of English language have an impact on their academic behaviours such as choosing and reading books, listening to Radio presentations, programs on Television channels that are  presented on English etc.

 

ENGLISH LANGUAGE LEARNING ATTITUDE AMONG STUDENTS

Learning a second language, on the other hand, is a process that is influenced by a number of factors. Specifically, one of such is the individual language learners’ attitude. Indeed, attitude is such an important concept in the learning process and it is used to refer to the totality of feelings, emotion, acts towards achieving something.

Furthermore, English language learning, throughout the world, is an object of important desire and attention. It is considered a great necessity while an ability to communicate in it is taken as a prime objective of many people for a number of reasons.

 

Without reservation, English language has an important role in Nigeria and many other countries of the world. In fact, it is the language which separates influential class from the rest of individual who live in the society.  English language learning, throughout the world, is an object of important desire and attention. It is considered a great necessity while an ability to communicate in it is taken as a prime objective of many people for a number of reasons. Thus, this is not unconnected to the fact that English is an international or global language (Choi & Lee, 2013).

From the foregoing, learning English as a foreign language has become a great need since it is a world language. On the other hand, learning English as a foreign language is a process that is influenced by a number of factors. In fact, one of such is the individual language learners’ attitude.

 

Without a doubt, English performs important functions and roles in Nigeria. It is not only a second language but also an official language through which all activities are expected to be conducted. Moreover, as a country of over 500 ethno linguistic groups, English is the language of communication among Nigerians. This is in addition to being a school subject and a language of instructions at all levels, from nursery, primary and Universities (Abidin, Pour-Mohammadi, & Alzwari, 2012).

The proficiency is therefore a must for learners rather than a mere requirement. It has become the pivot on which the wheel of Nigeria’s educational system rotates; It is a compulsory school subject that must be passed at all levels of education in the country, as well as the medium of teaching for all educational subjects from primary school to tertiary level (Alkaff, 2013).

 

In another perspective, attitude towards a language is a fundamental concept because it plays the main role in the learning of language and it is generally accepted that positive attitudes that support motivation and it is required to succeed in language learning (Al Othman & Shuqair, (2013).  Therefore, considering the importance of English in Nigeria and the significance of it learning aimed at investigating the English language learning attitude of the students of Akwa Ibom State College of Education Afaha Nsit.

 

1.2 Statement of the Problem

Undeniably, the Nigerian educational system in recent years has been facing a plethora of challenges ranging from lack of facilities, inappropriate policy formulation and implementation, lack of trained teachers, corruption among others (Ezike, 2018).

Better still, he said challenges have further caused a development of some negative learning attitude among students which in the long or short run would not only impede their academic chances of success, but lower public perspective of an excellent school graduate who could not only write, but speak so well.

Poor learning attitude in English language among Nigerian students as observed by Eka (2006) has brought about de-marketing of Nigerian graduates and lowered the chances of public communication and understanding among people, hence the researcher embarked on the study aimed at examining English language learning attitude among students of College of Education, Afaha Nsit a case of year one students.

 

1.3 Objectives of the Study

  • What are the attitudes of students towards the learning English language?
  • To what extent does English language learning attitude effect  achievement  among  year  one students studying English.

 

1.5 Research Hypotheses

The following hypotheses were formulated to guide the study:

  • There is no significant difference in learning attitude of year one students in the department of English and those in other departments.
  • There is no significant difference in the extent to which English language learning attitude effect achievement  among  year  one students studying English.
