A Comparative Study Between NESTs and NNESTs
- NEST; NNEST; comparative study; college oral English class
Since the education internationalization and the importance of English are enhanced continuously and proficiency occupies a primary role in the subject matter knowledge of English language teaching (ELT), the background of teachers as native or non-native English speakers is of major concern. Who is the ideal English teacher has been a hotly-debated issue for a long period. The research focuses attention on the students' attitudes for the two groups of teachers in a college. A total of 312 participants, including 6 native English speaker teachers (NESTs), 6 non- native English speaker teachers (NNESTs) and 300 students were involved in the study. A questionnaire was designed for 300 students. The findings of the study throw light to oral English teaching, which have significant implications for English language teaching in China.
