Abstract

The study was designed to investigate the effects of using language laboratory on students’ academic achievement in English Language in secondary schools in Enugu Education zone. The researcher adopted a non-equivalent quasi-experimental design. The population for the study was all the 5,113 SS 2 students in Enugu Education zone. A sample of 240 SS 2 students was drawn from the three secondary schools used; one intact class was then sampled using simple random sampling technique. One intact class was assigned to the Experimental Group I, and the other intact class was assigned to the group II taught without simulation. The two groups were taught using the language laboratory and using English textbooks. One research question and one hypothesis guided the study. Relevant data for the study were collected using English Language Achievement Test (ELAT). The instrument was face validated. The reliability of the instrument was determined using Kuder Richardson 20 which was 0.86. Research question was answered using mean and standard deviations while hypothesis was tested using Analysis of Covariance (ANCOVA). It was found that the use of language laboratory in teaching English language in secondary schools in Enugu Education zone was found to be better than teaching with only English texts. Teaching without language laboratory had no significant influence on students’ achievement in English language in secondary schools. Based on the findings of the study, the researcher recommended among others that the use of language laboratory be adopted for use in teaching English language
