Before independence, Cameroon was administered by two colonial powers - Britain and France under the United Nations Trusteeship Agreement. West Cameroon was administered by Britain, making English the official language in former West Cameroon, while East Cameroon, which was administered by France, embraced French as the official language. In 1961, West and East Cameroon re-united.The two languages emerged and were adopted as official languages having equal status. The University of Dschang created by Decree No 93/026 of 19/1/1993 building on the former foundation of the University Centre has five faculties. The teaching of the English language in the Faculty of Science with its Institute of Technology is the issue. It has been an old practice to teach English to Francophones in the Faculty of Science and the University Institute of Technology.The course is popularly known as'Formation Bilingue',ignoring the English expression- a reflection of the interference of French on English.This work evaluates the English taught in order to contextualize it in the area of English for Science and Technology and suggest remedial strategies.
There is a feeling of nervousness dread and anxiety while second or foreign language learners try to learn to communicate a language that is alien to them. A mixture of these feelings can have a negative impact on the learner and it could effect on communication while using the target language. There is a great demand to learn good communication skills with the wide-spread use of English Language and with the use of new teaching methods in the language classrooms. In spite of all these, the negative feelings can be a hindrance to the learning from achieving what they want. The language teacher who is helping the students learn the language is expected to be very cautious with the anxiety feelings of the learners when they are helped to achieve their goal. This study is an attempt to examine the elements that could probably cause language anxiety. There are many ways and methods that can be used both within the classroom environment and out of classroom in the social life in order to deal with such anxiety issues. The researchers of the past mentioned it to be difficult and they said it is a psychological thing.
For a long time the games are the entertainment, which is the most demanded for. Both in USA, and in a number of European countries, gaming industry overcame cinema in annual income already several years ago. The annual turnover in gaming industry already exceeded 15 billion dollars, and it still grows every year. I have proposed a logical gaming device, which combines the elements of Rubik’s Cube and the 15 puzzle, and which can be used widely to improve logical thinking abilities in children.

In the era of globalization, both Information Technology (IT) and English play a vital role in communication. IT creates an environment where communication is possible across the borders within a second. On the other hand, English is the dominant global language which is used to spread messages around the world. As technology prevails in all areas of life to make the things easy, language teachers and learners can also depend much upon it. This paper brings into focus the use of IT in English language teaching and learning. The purpose of the work is also to identify how IT relates to English language learning at tertiary level. Besides, it indicates the possibilities of using IT beyond language classroom. For the study two questionnaires were designed to survey and it was conducted among language teachers and learners. Inspite of having some limitations to implement IT in language classroom, teachers and learners expressed their positive attitudes towards it.

Thirteen parties over the course of two decades-an opium infused barbeque, a reception for a doomed presidential candidate, a fund-raiser for a blind child who speaks in tongues, a visit to one of New York’s fabled sex clubs-brilliantly reveal the lives of two couples, one hoping to be admitted to the kingdom of Art, the other hoping for a small share of the American dream, both driven by forces of history they rarely perceive or acknowledge. Thaddeus Kaufman, the son of booksellers, and Grace Cornell, raised in a basement apartment she longs to escape, meet at a neighborhood art fair in Chicago. Soon after, they head to New York, aloft on the wings of young love. Jennings Stratton, the son of a caretaker, and Muriel Sanchez, the daughter of a cop, meet in a house he is refurbishing in New Mexico, and they, too, head for the big city. In a vast Hudson River estate, the lives of the two couples ultimately intertwine. Thaddeus has made it big in an unexpected way, setting off a chain reaction of envy among his friends and peers and forever changing the dynamic of his marriage with Grace, for whom success has been elusive, and art, once a source of solace, has become a font of bitterness. And Jennings, hoping to transcend his reputation as the local Casanova, a man suited only for menial tasks, has ventured into a cycle of theft and betrayal that threatens to destroy the fragile life of his family. Funny and cutting, affecting and expansive, River Under the Road is Scott Spencer’s masterpiece of all that lies beneath our everyday lives-a story about the pursuit of love, art, and money, and the inevitable reckoning that awaits us all.
