This thesis attempts to describe and explain the role of English in education in the Sudan from its advent with the establishment of colonial rule at the beginning of this century to the present time - sixteen years after independence in 1956. It does this against a survey of the multilingual diglossic nature of the country and against a background description of the introduction and development of a highly selective Western system of education, in which English, naturally, came to assume a central role. More particularly, the study is concerned with the change in the role of English in the new situation, since independence, and its educational future in the Sudan. It seeks to establish the most durable needs for English and the existing and anticipated educational uses of the language and then to assess, in an empirical manner, the extent to which the teaching of English corresponds to these needs and uses.
