This work titled «Problèmes de production orale des apprenants du français langue étrangère (FLE) : le cas des apprenants de A.B.U., Zaria» is aimed at identifying the underlying root causes of oral expression difficulties that is a major challenge among the majority of Nigeria French Language students taking as case study the students of Ahmadu Bello University. To arrive at the set objective, we adopted a quantitative and qualitative approach by means of questionnaires and interview. The research findings showed that most French language students are indeed confronted with difficulties in oral expression such as lack of confidence in speaking, grammatical problem especially that of conjugation of verbs, poor vocabulary, wrong articulation of words, wrong sentence structure and lack of comprehension. According to our investigation, factors responsible for the identified problems can be classified into three, namely; psychological state of the students, foundational problems and linguistic environment. The research therefore proffers practical solutions through which the students‟ challenges can be resolved to a significant level. In that perspective, the students, the teachers, the institution as well as the government all have various roles to play.
