Abstract

The impact of informal education in a person’s life cannot be downplayed; sometimes it is the edge that an individual needs to succeed in a space. Learning a new complex set of knowledge and skills are both scary and exciting: Scary because you are adventuring into the unknown; exciting because the unknown holds great potential. Many people get stuck in the beginning stage. They do not understand the basics of learning or the learning process, setting themselves up to fail before they start. They waste time and energy on the new topic or skill, middling along with slow progress. Feeling frustrated and defeated by a lack of progress, they give up — with little success and learning from the time and energy. However, the paper focuses on the following; different language use in Nigeria (see Table 1), differences between formal and informal education, synergy between informal and formal education, pedagogical approaches to language and Pedagogy of Language was presented in table 2. This paper finds out that improving synergy between informal and formal education in Nigeria languages one has to apply all these methods, applications, simplifications and evaluations as it is stated in this paper below. It was also discovered that language acquisition and learning has nothing to do with mother tongue. Table 1 clarifies this argument. To achieve these aims, curriculum and government policy on education should be considered.
