Abstract

The purpose of this study was to investigate teachers’ beliefs toward teaching English in large classes. The study made use of a questionnaire to survey 75 tertiary-level lecturers in Thailand. All participants had more than one year's teaching experience. The questionnaire comprised 3 parts with closed-ended and open-ended questions and rating scales. It was used to find out the teachers’ beliefs concerning classroom management, teaching techniques and strategies, teaching procedures, evaluation and assessment, physical constraints, and affective relationships. The results show that tertiarylevel teachers think that teaching English in large classes may possible but many constraints should be taken into consideration.
