Abstract

The study examined the nexus between English language instructions and walkability constraints among adult residents in Southwest, Nigeria. In the light of this, two specific objectives and research questions were achieved and answered respectively. The study was premised on Social Cognitive Theory (SCT) as a relevant theoretical framework. With respect to methodology, descriptive survey research design was embraced and simple random sampling techniques were used to take a sample of three hundred and eighty-four (384) participants from the target population within the studied areas. In addition, a self-designed structured research instrument was administered on these respondents with the aid of twelve (12) trained research assistants and the obtained data was analyzed by employing descriptive statistical tool, that is, simple percentage. The empirical findings revealed that most adults barely comprehend English language instructions on road/community routes in southwest Nigeria, and as a result of this, they feel intellectually disturbed. It was recommended that well-trained English language instructors should be integrated into environmental planning team of each State Government within Southwest Nigeria to curb the rise of walkability constraints among adults.
