The poor performance in English - one of the core subjects especially in the primary school cUJTiculum has largely contributed to the overall poor performance in the other subjects and subsequently. In the Kenyan system of education there is great emphasis on the teaching of English language. This has been necessitated by the fact that globally, English is also one of the widely spoken international languages. Martha L. King (1984) argues that just as success in learning is linked to skill or the language, failure in language whatever the reason - is bound up in the way children share and create meaning through language. English is also the official language in Kenya. In any office in the country the medium used in communicating is English and in some few instances, Kiswahili. Except from the teaching of other languages like French, German and Kiswahili, all the other subjects offered in the school curriculum by the ministry of Education are taught in English .It is therefore imperative that learners first understand English language properly and acquire a fluency in the use of the language so that they can use it not only to do their exan1inations but to also, communicate effectively in their community and to understand other subjects.
