The literature on teacher dispositions does not address the dispositions of English as a Second Language (ESL) teachers at a national level or at an international level for those teachers of English as a Foreign Language (EFL). At a national level the ESL teachers in the US are usually involved in the education of minority students who have been classified as English language learners (ELLs) and at an international level, EFL teachers usually teach majority language students English for enrichment. The identification of dispositions has become more important in the preparation of second language teachers. © 2011 Published by Elsevier Ltd.
