Abstract

The advantages and disadvantages of learning English from native English-speaking teachers (NESTs) continue to be a subject that needs further clarification. Examining the perspectives of English as a Foreign Language (EFL) students on their encounters with NESTs while learning English at Eastern International University Foreign Language Center (EIU FLC) was carried out. The study utilized a quantitative methodology, employing the Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS) software to analyze survey data gathered from EFL students. Descriptive statistics, such as mean scores, were used to analyze the students' overall perceptions and opinions based on their responses. The survey, consisting of 33 Likert scale questions and one open-ended question, aimed at evaluating many facets of students' perspectives, such as the benefits and drawbacks of learning English with NESTs and the characteristics linked to students' satisfaction with studying English with NESTs. The findings of the study revealed that most of the students at EIU FLC exhibited positive views towards learning English with NESTs. The results offer significant perspectives from EFL students regarding their experience of learning with NESTs at EIU FLC. The findings also emphasize both the strengths and areas that require improvement. These findings add to the current discussion about the role of NESTs in language instruction and provide valuable information for developing future teaching methods and training programs for teachers.
