INTRODUCTION Background of the Study
The role of media in teaching and learning of English language combining academic study with the design and development of materials enables the students to develop their theoretical understanding of core language in teaching and learning issues and enhance analytical and investigation skills. Teaching English to speakers of other languages requires more than just an understanding of the grammar or perfect pronunciation. Using specific methods and appropriate media, English teachers can better interact with their students and help them achieve their language goals. An effective English language teacher must serve as a model for his/her students to emulate. To be good model, a teacher must be embedded with the qualities in language skills such as reading, writing, speaking and listening.
Electronic media are media that use electronics or electromechanical energy for the end users to access the content. Is the usage of medium, uses the application of phenomena of electronic via, radio and television are suggested in the study as a way of improving the teaching of English language in secondary schools? Since English language is inclusive in the syllabus and even made compulsory for all students its role cannot be overemphasized. Language has been a sort of limited lingua franca among educated people in Nigeria. English language has acquired the states of an official language in Nigeria and as not only bridged the communication gap among different ethnics groups but also as medium of communication among literates of different linguistic groups. Through the use of English language Hausa indigene could discuss with Yoruba indigene without any obstruction.
It is require of all learners to be thoroughly versed in English and also an important requirement for award or certificate admission into higher institution. From the time immemorial, there been poor performance of student s in English language that could be traced back to many factors such as;
a) Non-availability aids.
b) Inadequacy of professionally trained English teachers.
c) Exposure of poor standard of language.
d) Inability to write legible and speak good English as expected among the students.
The advance technology in Nigeria has giving room to rapid increase in the numbers of television and radio station. In view of this, many researches are being carried out in some states in Nigeria to know the effect of mass media in our society. This study was carried out to the extent to wish television and radio influence the teaching of English language in Nigeria secondary schools, particularly in Ado Local Government Area of Ekiti State. However the development of mass media such as television, newspaper and radio e.t.c. have contributed immensely to the teaching of English language and the students spent a greater percentage of their time listening to radio broadcast, watching important and educative programs on the television. These media were, designed to entertain, educate, broaden people’s outlook and offer new ways of learning and self expression. In essence, the important of media such as television and radio to the teaching of English language cannot be treated with levity hand since students academic performance are largely depended on the amount or resources made available for teaching the subject.
