Dialect and the Learning of English as a Second Language in Kenya

Margaret Gatavi Njeru

Abstract


The paper is not based on any empirical study that the researcher has carried out but on theoretical work. Kenya is a country composed of 42 different tribes, speaking different languages and each tribe has challenges in as far as acquiring/ learning English as a second language is concerned. The paper is meant to arouse interest in those who wish to do an empirical study as it gives an insight into the situation of English as a second language in Kenya.
