Abstract

Teaching English cannot be generally taught in the same ways to different students who have different backgrounds. Each student may have different purposes, learning styles, needs, interest and so on that may affect their successful in learning English. Students' backgrounds may influence their comprehension in analyzing such contexts in a real communication. In this case, English teachers are supposed to gather information related to their students' backgrounds. This information later can be used by the teachers to develop learning materials, teaching techniques, and so on. Shortly, it may help the teachers to give directions in conducting teaching and learning processes by considering the context the language used. Related to this case, at least, there are 4 main points that should be considered by the teachers in EFL class; students' needs, students' interest, students' behavior, and students' social background. This paper is discussed about teachers' performance as an information gatherer and its influence on teaching and learning processes in the classroom. This paper, which is derived and further developed based on the research done in 2013, was a kind of phenomenological research. The data of the research were qualitative data that were collected through observation and interview.
