Globalisation has become a convincing force dragging nations into the global system. It has led to a mixing of cultures, economies, markets, political systems and technologies among nations. English has become the official language spoken for business, yet to be seen how globalisation can help the effective oral and written communication of students. There are doubts and complaints about the inability students and graduates to effectively engage in oral and written communication. It is therefore useful to look at the gains of globalisation and harness them in favour of improving the oral and written communication of students. In this study, questionnaire forms were administered to randomly chosen students belonging to FSEV out of which 80 were retrieved to examine whether or not globalisation has helped to improve their oral and written communication, identify the challenges they face in their quest to involve in effective oral and written communication and propose solutions that can address these challenges and enhance their communication ability.
