CHAPTER ONE INTRODUCTION 1.1 Background to the study Hausa is the largest and dominate language in northern Nigeria. Education is the process of teaching or learning, especially in a school or college. The educational journey from pre-school to high school can be quite challenging. In pre-school and elementary school, students often receive individualized instruction from teachers during the learning process. In addition, pupils may spend several periods each day with the same teacher and classmates. However, in the middle school, students are likely to become mobile as they move from class to class to take courses from teachers in specialized areas. High school offers even more challenges. Students are actively engaged in determining which courses they take. Their courses are taught by different teachers and the students in their classes change from period to period. In this environment, students must make too rapid adjustments. First, they must become comfortable and efficient with the greater autonomy and responsibility presented by large and often impersonal high schools (Ford, Obiakor, and Patton, 1995). Second, they must adjust to a wide array of teaching styles, instructional techniques. Study Skills are strategies and techniques that enables you to make the most efficient use of your time, resources, and academic potential. Developing and improving your study skills can help you.
