Abstract: The main purposes of this study were to explore high school EFL teachers’ and learners’ perception of CLT and to examine the degree they practice the CLT principles in their entire classes in Ethiopian High School context. The data were collected through questionnaires (for both teacher and learner), classroom observation, and interviews (for both teachers and learners). A questionnaire (consisting of seven thematic groups) of 75 items for 26 teachers and of 47 items for 100 learners (who were randomly selected from three government high schools); classroom observations on 10 teachers and interview with 10 teachers and 15 learners(out of the whole subjects of the questionnaires) were administered in March and April 2008 . The overall findings of this study showed that the majority of teachers (80.41 %) and more than half (62.33 %) of learners under the study had mildly high levels of perception about CLT tenets. However, the study conversely reveals that there is a clear mismatch between what teachers and learners perceive about CLT and what they actually practice in EFL context.
