School of Languages
Modern man can hardly contemplate communal life without the instrument of language. Performance in language, especially spoken language defines personality. For the teacher, his credibility is almost entirely anchored on his competence in communicating ideas and stimulating learning through his use of language. Articulate and well-spoken teachers also invariably win the hearts and respect of their students or pupils.

Language is related to growth and development of man in the contemporary life i.e. cultural, intellectual, political and economical. Teaching and learning of language is as well an essential tool for knowledge acquisition, dissemination and application. Literature generally is known to be ‘language applied’. It is known also to embody the totality of the worldview of a people –social and political formations, culture, fears, anxieties, aspirations, etc. To study a language without its literature and culture is known to be a serious disservice.
