A Complete Course in Oral English
There is no doubt that there is a steady decline in the nation’s educational system and this worrisome development has become manifest in the dismal performance of students in WAEC, NECO and JAMB (UTME) examinations for more than a decade running now. It became significantly evident in the student’s results of the last seven to ten years.
Our app is aimed at reversing this trend; we have taken our time to patiently teach all the various sections – The Pure Vowels, the Diphthongs, The Consonants, The Rhymes and The Stress Patterns.
The Root Cause Analysis
Our research has, however, revealed that these woeful performances in especially, English Language, is traceable to, among other factors, student’s lack of sufficient exposure to some parts of English language, most particularly, Oral English or speech work. Some teachers of English Language, either lack the relevant basic skill and capacity for our current learning challenges or shy away completely from teaching this aspect of the language, for fear of being mimicked or ridiculed by students.
The Complete Oral English App bears it all – all you need in oral English and to excel in any exam in English Language including SSCE exams.
Only 10% of the total of 1.5 million candidates who enrolled for WAEC Examination in 2008 made 5 credits and above, including Mathematics and English Language.
Worse in 2009
Again, in 2009, only 1.80% could make 5 credits and above, with Mathematics and English Language.
Little Improvement in 2016
The analysis of WAEC Nov/Dec 2016 GCE result also shows that only 38.5% of the candidates, made 5 credits and above, including English Language and Mathematics.
Oral English contributes 25% of total score
It is a well known fact that Oral English constitutes paper 3 of WAEC and NECO English Language Examination, accounting for about 25% of the total score in English Language.
Poor Teaching Fingered
Some of the teachers of English Language, either lack the relevant basic skill and capacity for our current learning challenges or shy away completely from teaching this aspect of the language, for fear of being mimicked or ridicled by students.
