English is a West Germanic language that was spoken first in early medieval England and is now a global lingua franca.
As a unifying factor in world globalization, with hundreds of millions of people around the world using it daily, English is undoubtedly the most important global language, hence, a reason it is studied as a core subject in schools all over the world. English , as a subject, educates people on the English Language in general. The teaching and learning of English language aids in the understanding and employment of the language. English language in school is the study of the language itself. It informs leaner of the correct way to speak and write the language, the subtleties of the language-how it can be used poetically and creatively as well as in commutation. The study of English language holds so much importance because it is a universal language; the lingua franca of most nations of the world and the language of science, aviation, law, business, computer, diplomacy, the media, tourism and major subject disciplines in schools such as Government, Biology, Mathematics, Chemistry, Physics and so on. In addition, the study of English language as a subject in schools, increases the learners’ vocabulary, improves their language skills, enhances their competence in English grammar. The English language, as one of the core subjects in our school system, should be considered much more seriously, mostly, at the secondary school level (NPE 2004). It is used as a measure to determine students’ level of educability and also a measure for entrance examinations into higher institutions of learning, locally and internationally.

It is to the benefit of the students to take their English language classes seriously.
A major in English language opens a variety of career opportunities for English language graduates entering the job market. Since students who graduate with an English language degree are trained to ask probing questions about large bodies of texts and then to formulate, analyze and answer those questions in coherent, persuasive prose-skills vital to any number of careers,English majors have much to choose from after graduation. The most obvious career choices for English majors are writing, publishing, journalism and teaching.
