Introduction:
In 2000, Nigeria developed a policy on Information Technology (IT), with the aim of making Nigeria an IT adapted country in Africa and also a leading player in the use of ICT as an implement for sustainable development and global competitiveness. Since then Information and Communication Technology has been on the lips of every academic.  The world is about to leave behind anyone that is not ICT compliant. ICT has various forms and roles which it performs in learning, especially in the teaching and learning of language.  It is a powerful tool which can take the form of texts, pictures, tables, graphs, emails, fax, chat groups, discussion groups, SMSs, socializing portals, dictionaries, e-encyclopaedia, Power Point presentations, websites and audio-videos, etc.   It can play instructional roles which include making learners feel more relaxed to learn various topics and tasks and making them active as learning is technologically based.
