The purpose of this study was to gain an understanding of what Ewha Womans University students perceive to be the attributes of effective EFL lecturers and to measure the levels of importance they place on each of these attributes. The first section of the study (Stage 1) elicited a list of attributes from a stratified sample of the freshmen students enrolled in EFL. The second section (Stage 2) gathered and analysed ratings and rankings of these attributes from a proportional-stratified sample of the same population. In the end, a list of attributes was produced with corresponding discussion of the values the students placed on each one.
