The purpose of this research is to examine the challenges of teaching English in Nigerian public secondary schools with special emphasis on what teachers and teacher educators think about this issue.
Primary data was gathered through the administration of questionnaires to teachers as well as conducting interviews with teachers and teacher educators in selected secondary schools and universities.
Responses from the questionnaires and interviews were analyzed both quantitatively and qualitatively through the use of content analysis.
The study revealed that English teaching in public schools is facing numerous challenges that require dedication and time if improvement is envisaged.
Based on the findings from this study, it is recommended that greater care is taken in the selection of candidates for admission into the teacher training programs and that the government should be ready to become more actively involved in all areas of education as this will lighten most of the present burdens.
