Challenges in the Teaching of Use of English in Nigerian Tertiary Institutions in a Globalising World

Ugwuanyi, Elizabeth Nneka, Joachim C. Omeje


Teaching English as a foundation course in our tertiary institutions can be cumbersome and tasking.  The use of English is a main course taught in almost all tertiary institutions in Nigeria.  The use of English refers to the conventional English language programme taught to new entrants in tertiary institutions.  The approach is general and not geared to any specific group of students despite the diversity in their academic pursuit and language needs.  However, the course faces many challenges.  This paper therefore aims to examine these challenges by looking at English and the concept of global language, challenges of globalization, problems faced in teaching the use of English and proffers solutions to these challenges.

Key words: Use English, Challenges, Teaching and Globalising
