These non-native teachers have taught hand in hand with the native speakers for centennial however, research on the students’ in the facets of attitudes and perceptions of their teachers have only been carried out recently. This paper reports on a study conducted which investigated the attitudes and perceptions of transfer students towards their non-native lecturers. The students were queried via a questionnaire and interviews. On the whole, the students had a favorable attitude although some shortcomings were indicated.
