However, recent researches and experiments have clearly demonstrated that language teaching by mixed (Native/Non-Native) teaching teams have been highly effective. Team teaching by native and non-native teaching teams have successfully been implemented in such nations as Japan, Thailand, and China. It has also been identified that team teaching by mixed teams enhances the students’ cross-cultural understanding and listening, fosters a genuine need for students to communicate through the target language and that it enhances the professional development of teachers and promotes innovative teaching. The following literature review seeks to explore the various aspects of collaborative language teaching by mixed teams that comprise of native and non-native English teachers.
Carless (2007) has made some remarkable studies on collaborative EFL teaching in primary schools in Hong Kong undertaken by foreign native-speaking English teachers and their local counterparts. Studies have shown that native-speaking English teachers (NETs) and local English teachers (LETs) possess complementary attributes. while the NETs “create a genuine need for students to communicate through the target language” the LETs are well-equipped to communicate through the learners’ mother tongue (Carless, 2007, p. 328). The database for the study included “a short open-ended questionnaire survey of 47 LETs. email and face-to-face interviews carried out with 12 NET and 8 LET teachers. three interviews with key personnel involved in primary NET schemes. and classroom observations of six team-taught lessons in schools” (Carless, 2007, p. 329). The findings of the study showed that team teaching has a great impact on pupils and that it enhances the professional development of teachers and fosters innovative teaching. The open-ended questionnaire survey with the 47 LETs clearly demonstrated that the presence of the NETs in team teaching has had a great positive impact on the teaching-learning process.
