Research papers have been written about teaching EFL in Japanese universities and colleges. Foreign and Japanese instructors have described students’ attitude to learning English and patterns of their behavior in EFL classrooms. However, researchers have not focused on EFL teachers, especially foreigners, their attitudes and perceptions of their role in the Japanese education system. The present paper will attempt to fill this gap and look into the position of foreign EFL instructors from the socio-cultural perspective.
