ABSTRACT

 

English Language is the medium of communication in educational institutions in Sierra Leone. This paper is from the research work by the author and it investigated the factors affecting the use of English Language by students in the Eastern Polytechnic campuses in Eastern Sierra Leone. The study showed that female participation in class activities such as in debates does not exceed male participation, even though females talk a lot in class. At the same time, women are not better adapted to visual –spatial and 21mathematical tasks, but they are articulate, gentle and more verbally skilled than men. It further showed that an adult speaker has some type of mental grammar or linguistic knowledge; that grammatical category of gender applies in describing language use.  The study recommended that there should be adequate practice by students on English Language, for which the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology must enforce a policy on debate competitions in schools and colleges to help acquire fluency in English Language; and that lecturers too should allow drill activities in class and must encourage students to profitably visit and use the facilities in the library.
