چکیده    This paper explores the recent trends regarding the maintenance and shift in the use/learning of french and english in cameroon. while ze amvela’s study entitled “english and french in cameroon: a study of language maintenance and shift” showed that the shift in language use/learning in cameroon is towards the direction of the majority official language, french, recent trends show the reverse, that is, a movement towards english in the last fifteen years. this is an interesting scenario due to the fact that it contradicts the usual trend. the paper thus explores the motivations for and implications of this phenomenon to the learning and use of these two official languages in cameroon in the near future.
