Teachers’ Factors that Influence the English Language Teaching-Learning Process in Ecuadorian High Schools in the context of e-Education and Society

In Ecuador, English is taught in elementary and high schools; however, when students enter higher education, it is evidenced that they have little or no knowledge about the language. Therefore, we are interested in discovering to what extent the factors concerning teachers affect the learning of English in the e-society. This study is based on a mixed method design, and explores teacher’s factors that intervene in the English language teaching- learning process which affect students’ learning in Ecuadorian high schools. The sample included 1155 Ecuadorian teachers. The data was collected through the application of a questionnaire designed to gather teachers’ opinions, and observations to support the data obtained from the questionnaire. The results showed that although the majority of teachers have a degree in EFL, their professional practice reflects lack of training in relation to appropriate use of methodologies and technological teaching resources, as well as low English level which influence e-education.
