Oral English is an aspect of English Language in the Nigeria school curriculum.

This study equally intends to fill the gap in the inadequencies of teaching methodologies of the prosodics. It has been observed that learners shy away from learning this important aspect of oral English called suprasegmental. There is no extensive teaching of the suprasegmental. The suprasegmentals which is called prosodics feature in phonetics includes: stress, tone or word conjucture that accompanies over consonants and vowels place important role in effective communication.
On this note, i will like to contribute my quota by filling the gap on the advancement of teaching and learning the prosodics. Suprasegmental aspect of english and phonology needs to be properly taken care of by the curricularist. Some of the problem associated with it can be traced to failure in English language and the effective use of the language.
