ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study is to investigate the perception of primary teachers and students on an English education policy of Korea, teaching English through English (TEE). This study also investigates the associations among the variables of teachers (gender, English teaching experience as an English subject teacher or homeroom teacher, oversea training experience) and learners (gender, grade, private tutoring, oversea training/schooling experience). 91 primary teachers and 1351 students participated in this study. Questionnaires were used to collect the data. For the data analysis, multiple response, Crosstabs, and ANOVA were used. The results obtained were as followings; 1) There was an agreement between primary teachers and students in recognizing the necessity of TEE but a big gap in recognizing the concept of TEE. 2). Both teachers and students recognized the positive effects of TEE and the importance of English proficiency for the success in implementing TEE. 3) Both teachers and students considered a team teaching as an effective way to implement TEE in Korea. 4) The results mentioned above are associated with learners' variables more actively.
