|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
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.|
