TESOL Worldwide - Teaching English Abroad in Nigeria

English is the official language of Nigeria. Many teaching jobs are filled by the locals, however there are paid and volunteer positions available. The number of languages currently estimated and cataloged in Nigeria is 521. This number includes 510 living languages, two second languages without native speakers and nine extinct languages. In some areas of Nigeria, ethnic groups speak more than one language. The official language of Nigeria, English, was chosen to facilitate the cultural and linguistic unity of the country. The choice of English as the official language was partially related to the fact that a part of the Nigerian population spoke English as a result of British colonization that ended in 1960.
