The Present-Day English for Schools and Colleges


The problem of learning in the second language situation has been with us for a long time. Recent developments have pointed out clearly that there are still second language problems in teaching and learning in various institutions of learning in West Africa. Recently, the result of the external examinations of our students shows that the problems have not been adequately resolved. High rates of failure have been recorded in English language by WAEC, NECO, NABTEB, JAMB and other examination bodies. Although many language teachers have written a lot about English language teaching and learning aimed at ensuring that students or learners are equipped with the knowledge needed towards guaranteeing a competent use of the English language and ameliorating the endemic problem of poor performance in the English language examinations, many gaps are still left uncovered by a majority of these available textbooks. The Present-Day English (Examination Aid) for Schools and Colleges is designed, not only to fill the gaps in the existing English textbooks, but also to tackle the problem being encountered by the students who are preparing for internal and external examinations, as well as lifelong knowledge on which to base academic and professional pursuits in all institutions of learning. The author has innovatively applied ingenious method and provided in this book every bit of cognitive and technical knowledge of the examination tactics needed by every student at the senior secondary schools, colleges and other learning institutions in West Africa. This book stands out because the author writes clearly with the background of likely users in mind, and the book is designed to solve the problem of high rates of failure recorded in English every year by WAEC, NECO, NABTEB, JAMB and other external examination bodies. The author, by his wealth of experience in teaching, tutoring and lecturing the subject, and as an examiner/marker for the West African Examinations Council, National Examinations Council and some other examinations, provides evaluative questions at the end of each unit to enable students make self-assessment and have an exposure to the different techniques to employ in answering questions. He also provides answers to copious objective questions to reinforce the learning of the various units of the book. Adeola A. Adelakun BE.d, M.A (Ibadan), CNS (USA) 07032737483
