INTRODUCTION 

1.1 Background of the Study Language is a means of communication. It is one of the powerful tools that Nature gave to humankind. There are over thousands of different languages across the world. Ghana alone can boast of over forty-six (46) different languages of which about nine (9) are studied or learned in schools: Twi, Ga, Ewe, Fante, Dagaare, Dagomba (Dagbani), Dangme, Gonja, and Kasem. According to Dako (2002): 

It is generally estimated that there are between 42-55 languages in Ghana. Six of these are given air time in the public broadcasting system and are used in official, written communications: Akan, Ewe, Ga, Dagbani, Hausa and Nzema. Of these, two can be described as lingua francas: Twi (Akan) and Hausa.   However, the Standard English language is the official language of Ghana. In fact, it is the language of commerce, media, education, politics, parliament, judiciary, law and so on. Apart from lower primary, in some institutions, English is the medium of instruction in all the levels of the educational institutions in Ghana.
