Man is a language and political animal. The secret of one’s intellectual and social success both in the university and outside university depends on one’s positive communicative competence. In fact, one’s perception and expression of reality depend on one’s knowledge of words to express them. A command of language will improve the process of one’s mind. It will give one assurance, build one’s confidence, lend colour to one’s personality and increases one’s popularity.
The School of Languages aims at assisting students to acquire positive communicative competence that promotes intelligibility.

Current Dean is Mrs. Okpalike, Bridget Ifeoma
