ABSTRACT:

Students’ performance in Language Arts in Teacher Training Colleges and Polytechnics in Sierra Leone has been appalling. This paper is intended to look mainly at some factors that contribute to the poor performance of students in Language Arts at the Teachers’ Certificate level. Data was collected through a formal questionnaire approach.  The  data was analysed to indicate  which items  on the questionnaire students responded  to most or not, and  which ones they did  not give  any response to, in connection with  factors affecting  the performance of Teachers’ Certificate students in Language Arts. The results were selected, tabulated, and were expressed into percentages. It revealed that students seldom speak English in College and at home; use Krio quite often. They have never participated in a debate competition, symposium, and find literature and grammar more difficult.  The study further revealed that although a lot of factors are to be responsible for the poor performance of students in Language Arts, the results are encouraging   at public examination, NCTVA 2002 -2005.journal of english
