ABSTRACT
The role of grammar and grammar teaching in an EFL class has been controversial. The beliefs of English native speaking teachers teaching in an EFL context about grammar and the influence of such beliefs on their classroom practices remain relatively unexplored. This study aimed to investigate beliefs of English native speaking teachers at a Thai university about grammar and grammar teaching. It also examined their actual classroom practices of teaching grammar. For data collection, multiple methods were used including questionnaires and classroom observations. Areas where practices converged with or diverged from beliefs were identified and discussed. Factors affecting the teachers' classroom practices were also investigated.
