THIS REPORT PRESENTS A DESCRIPTION OF THE ACTIVITIES, ACCOMPLISHMENTS, HOST GOVERNMENT CONTRIBUTIONS, PROBLEMS, AND RECOMMENDATIONS MADE CONCERNING THE TWO-YEAR PROJECT (NOVEMBER 1, 1966 TO 1967) IN WHICH TELEVISION AND RADIO WERE USED AS MEDIA FOR TEACHING ENGLISH AS A SECOND LANGUAGE IN NORTHERN NIGERIA. A SERIES OF TELECASTS (EIGHT 20-MINUTE SCRIPTS) ENTITLED "THE SOUNDS OF ENGLISH" WERE PREPARED FOR THE FIRST SCHOOL TERM OF 1966.
