Abstract


This work investigates globalization as it concerns the learning of the Igbo language in Nigeria. It begins by rendering the meaning of the term ‘globalization’ and such other words related to it. The significance of the use of globalization in the learning of Igbo was reviewed. It was observed that there are factors posing challenges to this significance hence recommendations made to serve as a panacea. Those recommendations made included amongst other things; good leadership, fortifying financial institutions, ensuring the independence of the judiciary, establishment of good schools and provision of other developmental facilities. The objective of this study therefore is to put to use the significance accruable from the use of globalization and ICT in the learning of Igbo in order to promote the language. The major problem this research seeks to address is to prevent the near extinction of the Igbo language and to reposition it for commercial purposes, legal practice and education just like one of the other languages in the world. The ‘Teaching and learning Theory’ of Lawrence (2011) is adopted. The theory claims that any tool readily available could be adopted to aid the learning and understanding of a language. The study will be most significant to all of Igbo extraction because if it could be used to restrain the danger of the extinction of Igbo, every Igbo man becomes a beneficiary as language is the major identity of a people. Others that will benefit from this work are journalists, Igbo teachers, Igbo students, etc. Owing to the fact that there are two conventions being used in the writing of Igbo spellings i.e. separation of nominal and joining them together. The author chooses the convention of writing two nominal apart. But such words contained in the Igbo meta language remain untouched as they are in the book.
