Background of the study
The cause of pupils negative behaviour towards teaching and learning of English.
Learning is the permanent acquisition and habitual utilization of the newly acquired knowledge or experience learning includes skills knowledge, ideas and experiences and this can be related to the three taxonomy of objective of education, that is
Cognitive domain: This is the set of educational objectives concerned with knowledge outcomes and intellectual abilities and skills. 
The Affective Domain: This has to do with attitudes, appreciations, values and mode of adjustment.  The psychomotor: This particular domain is concerned with motor skill, it emphasizes the manipulations of materials and objectives of such mechanical skills as sketching, charting map drawing etc.
To survive in this contemporary world people must continue to learn or acquire new skills or knowledge because of new inventions in technology.
Teaching can refer to occupation or profession, teaching can also mean activities undertaken by a more experienced and knowledgeable person in order to make other learn.  Teaching can be defined “as the provision for experience and guidance of activities designed to promote learning on the part of those engaging in the activities.  The learner learns through some activities while the teacher does everything that is possible to make learning possible for the learner.  Generally speaking teaching involves influencing someone to change one’s attitude or behaviour on the basis of new skill, knowledge and appreciation.
An investigation into the problems and causes of pupils’ negative attitude towards teaching and learning of English in some selected schools in Ile – Oluji Oke – Igbo local Government Area of Ondo State. Are:
Most of the male pupils frequently absent themselves from school and the reason is the parents do not make enough provision for their pupils schooling materials in terms of facilities like textbooks, school uniform, food, transport fare and other provision for daily use.  The trouble with the (father) parents in this area is that they love marrying more than one wife and the wives give birth to many children more than what a single man can care for adequately in terms of Education this is one of the reason for some pupils to go on looking for daily, pay job to support the little effort of the (father) parents.
Broadly speaking the study therefore aims at identifying the causes of teaching and learning problems of (some subjects such as English, with this view, it is hoped that the solution to such caused problems will help to improve the performance in the above mentioned subjects in examination and consequently increase the interest, self reliance and confidence to participate actively in societal activities.
