Abstract

This study explores English as Foreign Language (EFL) senior high school teachers’ beliefs about foreign language learning and teaching in Indonesia context. A survey design was used to obtain data about Indonesian EFL teachers’ beliefs from 75 English language teachers (32 males and 43 females). A convenience random sampling technique was used to select the respondents from various geographical areas within Indonesia. An adapted instrument was administered online to gather the data from those samples, and to analyze the data, descriptive statistics was utilized. Indonesian EFL teachers’ belief about foreign language learning and teaching is not yet conclusively revealed. While the beliefs can determine teachers’ classroom teaching behaviour, and uncover EFL teachers’ view on how language learned and taught; therefore, study on EFL teachers’ belief about language learning and teaching is worth conducting. The findings revealed that EFL teachers possess different perceptions about foreign language learning talent, the challenges in language learning and the nature of language learning and teaching. Unlike in some other parts of the world, English in Indonesia is considered as a foreign language, therefore this view will affect the Indonesian EFL teachers’ beliefs and practices. Keywords: English as Foreign Language, English Language Learning and Teaching, Teachers’ beliefs.
