Abstract: The purpose of this study was to assess the behaviour and attitude of 'Expert' and 'Inexpert' teachers towards the teaching of English as a foreign language in government-owned high schools in Addis Ababa. The literature review mainly focused on the various teacher behaviors revealed in an EFL teaching situation, the attitudes and views of various teachers towards the English teaching; and related issues in this area. Questionnaires and observation were conducted with a sample of teachers and students. Observations were conducted to classrooms on formal English teaching classes in various high schools. The results indicate that most of the teachers who are currently at work in government-owned high schools in Addis Ababa basically exhibited a 'non-expert' and in-effective teaching behaviours and attitudes toward the practice of teaching English as a foreign language. The 'Expert' teaching attitude found to be much lesser, and hence, its teaching outcome or impact-very insignificant .. Finally, Recommendations were accordingly proposed to reasonably improve and change the currently demonstrated teaching behaviors and attitudes of English teachers.
