Over the years, shadow education, a supplement to the formal or classroom learning has considerably gain ground in both the developed and less developed countries. This form of education provides the most needed support especially to candidates preparing for competitive entrance examinations. Due to the inability of the public sector to accommodate all the graduates, competitive entrance examinations has been seen as the appropriate mechanism through which candidates can be meritoriously selected. The present study seeks to examine the impact of the effectiveness of preps groups in the training of candidates for entrance examinations into advanced schools in Cameroon. As such, the study is purely quantitative based on the deductive research design. A close ended questionnaire was administered to a sample of 515 participants randomly selected for the study. Two theories were used to discuss the results of the findings which are Hannan and Freeman Organisational ecology theory and Avery`s sustainable leadership theory. Statistical data analysis techniques, precisely the regression analysis was used to analyse the data collected from the field. Basing on the findings, it was revealed that the effectiveness of the preparatory groups is a positive and strong predictor of the training of candidates for entrance examinations into advanced schools in Cameroon since the model established a moderate and good fit. This implies that the success of candidates in entrance examinations in Cameroon largely depends on how effective the preps groups are in the training of these candidates.

Factors that characterise the postmodern condition and society tend to make it difficult or even unnecessary for characters to obtain a stable sense of identity. Most of these factors require a sense of identity adaptable to the fast-changing and fragmented condition of the postmodern society. Characters who tend to shift their identities according to the changing conditions of their societies are considered to have protean identities. In Girl, Woman, Other, Bernardine Evaristo represents characters whose race, class, gender and sexual identities shift across contexts and over time. This paper examines the identity of the postmodern woman as a complex multifaceted subject and how this is depicted in Girl, Woman, Other. In the context of this study, I will focus on identity fluidity in relation to race, gender, sex and sexuality. These are some of the fundamental categories that constitute a subject. The postmodern literary woman’s identity construction seems to be open to multiple possibilities of the self. Textual analysis will be done through the lenses of postmodern feminism, especially the concepts developed by Judith Butler. This study revealed that in her attempt to adapt her sense of self to the diverse and fast-changing conditions of the postmodern society, the postmodern woman adopts a multifaceted and sometimes fragmented identity. Fluid and multiple identity construction processes become a liberating and empowering phenomenon for women. The characters who seek to define themselves do so in an attempt to gain some power over their lives or take control over their own experiences.

The article titled "An Assessment of communities of Practice (CoPs) of Teacher Associations as a tool for English language teacher Professional Development" seeks to highlight the role of CoPs of teacher Associations in the professional development of English Language teaching practitioners. Quantitative data was retrieved through a questionnaire from Cameroonian English language teachers, most of who belong to the Cameroon English Language and Literature Teacher's Association (CAMELTA), affiliate of TESOL International Association and the International Association of Teachers of English as a Foreign Language (IATEFL), the two Associations adopted as case studies for this Article. Findings showed that art of building teacher Communities of practice is not really practiced by these teachers. It was Aldo realized that CoPs could greatly boost teacher interest in the profession, where the teacher, through professional development could focus on his or her area of expertise and passion. This strategic grouping, (CoPs) may cause the teachers to socially identify themselves with like- minded colleagues. This could go a long way in boosting interdisciplinary discourse exchanges, -CoPs, which is very important for professional development.

The effect of mirage has a firm power to engross the state of mind of persons who support themselves with dreams with the ultimate hope to run away from despair, dreams of grandiose success to overcome his deplorably precarious daily life. This study examines warranty and illusion of African intellectual with the aim of overviewing Africa’s hated past, and a wandering present. From the Socio-political history, it teaches that Africa saw its freedom vanished when the hours of the slave trade rang at its door. The instability of most African states impetuses young African intellectuals to devastating despair. This situation, becomes more intense, and causes in young people disaffection with the environment in which they find themselves. In this current state of affairs, migration becomes an irreproachable dream in the minds of those who hope to succeed beyond their continent. This situation has led to a new form of slave trade involving self-enslavement or the sale of oneself, and the business of advertising Eldorado which is a new business among African youth. Findings from the texts understudy revealed that, presently, this process has become a media phenomenon, the world becomes frustrated when a neighbouring world approaches its so-called legal territory. Therefore, young Africans are bruised by humiliation since their contact with the Whites who have long objectified them and continue to perpetrate it in other forms by new methods very gentle to hurt, have today become the most vulnerable migrants. The precariousness of the continent drives these young minds to migrate to Europe or the Western world in general to exchange their strength for money.
