The study analyzed the influence of English Towards student’s performance in Kiswahili

language in selected rural secondary schools in Kenyenya district, Kenya.

It was guided by objectives that included assessing the effects of learning English and

performance of students in Kiswahili language; to find out the problems faced by students in

learning Kiswahili language and how these problems affect their academic performance.

The research study was base on the following theories; the reinforcement theory which states

that children learn to produce grammatical sentences because they are positively reinforced.

And the social learning theory which notion states that an individual’s behaviour is influenced

by the environment and characteristics of the person.

Having employed both qualitative and quantitative methods of data collection where 150

respondents participated the researcher found out that the influence of English language

interferes with the student’s capability to put much consideration in Kiswahili language thus

making a student to perform poorly in Kiswahili language. This was due to Lack of

commitment and competent teachers which was also cited as the cause of the poor

performance. Defective system of examination that was found to lead to poor performance.

80.6% of all the responses agreed that the current examination system is not a good one it

only contributes the failure of learners. And a major cause found was negative attitude to

students for example in boy’s school where boys dodge lessons thus leading to poor

performance

The study recommends that the parents and teachers should intervene to ensure that the found

problems are diminished. Students should be encouraged to work hard and to have positive

attitude towards Kiswahili language by providing scholarships to best students in Kiswahili.

This will encourage competition among students. Parents should be ready to contribute where

need arises to support the learning of their children. Also, the community should be mobilized

to initiate and develop various systems to support the family such as infrastructures, emotional and psychological support of facilities in need to improve Kiswahili language.
