Abstract

This study identifies challenges that teachers face in English classrooms at the tertiary educational level. A focus on the complications that commonly arise from curricular, extra-curricular and professional hurdles helps to resolve those problems and provide answers through recommendations for increased collaboration, reflection and action research. The results indicate the benefits to teachers of participating in professional and language development courses, creating a more comprehensive course syllabus/outline, professional reflection and increasing efficiency by using action research.
