Abstract


This research investigates the ways perceptions of ethics and ethical behavior in the classroom impacts the ethos of an EFL (English as a Foreign Language) classroom. The paper presents quantitative and qualitative research conducted through analysis of professors’ and students’ views and suggestions collected through checklists. The participants of this survey were ten randomly chosen professors from the Language Center and the English Department at the Faculty of Languages, Cultures, and Communications and 100 students from different departments of SEE University, Tetovo, Macedonia. The findings suggest that students’ and professors’ perceptions of classroom ethics were different on several key issues. Also, there were various goals set for improvement by professors and students in terms of raising the level of ethical behavior in class. However, both sides suggest interesting ways of integrating ethics in the classroom.

Keywords: ethics, classroom ethos, EFL, professors’ views, students’ views.
