Abstract: The purpose of this study is to examine the challenges confronting the teaching and learning of Spoken English in Nigerian secondary schools. The study was a survey research. Participants consisted of 200 teachers selected from 40 secondary schools in Ijebu East and Ikenne Local Government Areas of Ogun State. Simple random technique was used to select the schools and the participants of the study. A selfconstructedquestionnaire was employed by the researcher to gather information. Test- retest method was used to establish the reliability of the test, the reliability was at 0.81. Six research questions were raised. The research questions were tested at 0.05 level of significance. Findings revealed that pedagogy influences the learning of Spoken English. Also, large class and non-availability of instructional materials affects teachinglearning of Spoken English in secondary school. The research recommended that students should be motivated to learn Oral English. Apart from this, students identified with pronunciation interference should be given special attention. English teachers should attend workshops, seminars, conferences regularly and that government should build language laboratory in secondary schools.
Description: Communication is an essential feature in human life since it is used to run daily activities. Communication is a process of exchanging information, ideas, thoughts, feelings and messages from one person to another (Osikomaiya,2010). Osijo (2017) defined communication as a process of transmitting or transferring ideas, feelings, thoughts or messages from one entity to another entity. Wood (2006) asserted that communication is a systematic process in which people interact with symbols to create and interpret meaning. Language is highly essential before communication can be achieved. English language is an important language in Nigeria educational system. It has established itself firmly in Nigeria as the country's most important language. The importance of English Language is not in terms of the number of its speakers but in terms of the variety of functions it performs. The roles and functions of English Language are enormous, it becomes necessary and germane to ensure that it is effectively taught and learnt in schools.
