EFFECT OF TECHNIQUE OF SONG ON STUDENTS’ ACHIEVEMENT AND INTEREST IN FRENCH ESSAY WRITING

CHAPTER ONE

 INTRODUCTION

 Background of the Study 

 Language is the most remarkable tool that man has invented, which has been used to ensure survival, express ideas and emotions, tell stories, remember the past and negotiate with one another. It is a feature of every human society and culture. Azikiwe, (1998) opines that language is a human characteristic that distinguishes man from the lower animals. According to Azikiwe, lower animals make varieties of communicative sounds and gestures but none of them has evolved a communicative system, as powerful and flexible as human language. Consequently, the Federal Republic of Nigeria (FRN), 2004) states that Government appreciates the importance of language as a means of promoting social interaction and national cohesion; and preserving cultures. Thus, “French is now Nigerian’s second official language and it shall be compulsory in primary and Junior Secondary Schools”, (FRN, 2004: 10). Ministerial Committee on the Review of French language Syllabus and Curriculum (MCRFLSC) held in June, 2006 to develop the curriculum for use at the Junior Secondary School level. Some of the objectives of this curriculum are as follows:  To encourage the innovative capacity of the teacher who should be able to improve on materials in order to enhance effective delivery;  To carry out continuous writing in French language employing correct usage of grammar, idiomatic expression, orthography, punctuation and other mechanics of the language;  To manifest creativity in French language through composition of short stories, plays, news-sheets, word-games, songs and other innovative techniques; (Federal Ministry of Education (FME, 2006). However, Language is not only spoken but survives in written form, such as in essay writing. The National Curriculum in French language was structured by MCRFLSC in 2006, in line with the above objectives. The second and third objectives which deal with the written dimension of the curriculum are of particular interest in this study. This is because according to Umo, (2001) the utility values of any language lie in the ability to communicate ideas effectively in oral and written forms. Writing is one of the four basic language skills (spneaking, listening, reading and writing). Essay writing has been defined in a variety of ways. Otagburuagu, Oba, and Ogenyi, (2010) opine that essay writing is a process of communicating idea in continuous prose format. To Ayo, (2006), essay writing is a literary device for saying almost everything about anything. It is also a short literary composition on a particular theme or subject.
