Alaje Oyebola Olubunmi

Abstract


An international bilingual person certainly has access to information and exposure than one with

 only one international language, In this regards, Nigerians have to learn a second official

language – French which will certainly help to fit into the globalised economy successfully

considering the fact that language is the heartbeat of all communication. Hence this paper

through a sociolinguistic approach tends to highlight the sufferings encountered in learning this

second official language and then recommends differs steps to alleviate these unpleasant rigours

 which have presented the language as an insurmountable mountain and a round peg in a square

 hole to learners of the language in Nigeria. This will hopefully contribute to the progress of

French teaching and learning in Nigeria.


Keywords
