In order to do this, 132 seventh grade students were randomly selected from Patriots' Junior High School. A test was prepared and given to these students by the writer to measure their ELP while their academic achievement test results in maths, science and geography were gathered from the school record. The Pearson Product-Moment Correlation Coefficient formula used to find the correlation between English- Geography, English-maths:} English-Science. The results of the computation reveled that: the correlation between English-Geography was 0.55. - the correlation between English-Maths was 0.56.Policy. Only 7. 69 of those who scored 50% in the ELPT failed in all the three subjects. On the bases of the results of' the study and other relevant points mentioned in this paper, recommendations have been given.
