Investigating the Values and Behaviors of ESP Teachers and Their Experience in Classrooms
The current research sought to explore the values and relations between Iranian ESP teachers and classroom experience. To do this, 20 five ESP teachers who teach English for unique purposes at the Islamic Azad University, Kermanshah Branch, Kermanshah District, Kermanshah, Iran participated in the study through convenient sampling in various disciplines, such as Chemistry, Accounting, Mathematics and Law. Gender was not among the targets of this analysis as the participants monitored their possible results. The participants were interviewed and asked to fill in the gaps at periods while they had spare time in order that the results would be as accurate and relevant as possible. The instructor had a questionnaire completed by the researcher. They were therefore regularly interviewed outside the university in their spare hours. The research results showed that the ESP teachers’ views regarding their classroom teaching experience were inconsistent.
