Boboye Florence Toyin, Sofowora Olaniyi Alaba


The sudden neglect of Yoruba Language and culture have been a major concern for the Egbe Akomolede Yoruba(Yobuba Language Scholars Teachers and researchers). They raised their fear that if no concerted is made, the Language may soon face extinction. The group identified several factors like globalization and the advent of the emerging technologies that have made a devastating impact on the Language. The low enrolment of students and lack of interest of students to pursue further studies in the subject coupled with shortage of qualified teachers are factors militating against the teaching and learning of the subject. Parental attitude at discouraging their wards from speaking the Language at home is another major problem. The resultant effect is that majority of today’s youths can not speak Yoruba language fluently. In spite of the fact that the Language was made compulsory at the junior secondary school level students performance in examinations were still very poor .In response to the call by Egbe Akomolede Yoruba and Ngugi, an intervention must be made to correct the situation. Hence, the main focus of this study is to investigate how student’s interest and performance in the Language could be enhanced using multi media leaning package. The study adopted the pretest, post test control group experimental design. The sample was one hundred junior secondary school students selected from two schools using purposive and simple random sampling techniques. these were also randomly assigned to two groups(experimental and control groups).Three research instruments were used for data collection. The instruments were validated for content validity and opinion of experts sought. Reliability was measured using test re- test method. Data collected were analyzed using descriptive and inferential statics of t-test. The results showed that multi media learning approach was a better and preferred approach to the conventional approach .It enhanced better performance than the conventional method.
