With this in mind, and with particular reference to the lack of elaboration on the part of the student in question, we decided to conduct research into what Turkish learners regard as good teaching of English.
Alison Rostetter's insight:

Highly interesting.  I include 2 quotes here from the text:

 

………add teachers’ conception of the good English teacher came about at seeing teachers’ unease about the evaluation forms that students anonymously complete at the end of each semester.

 

One trait that both groups of learners did place a great deal of importance on was that of the personal qualities of the teacher. Indeed, as with the teacher respondents, this was the regarded as being the most important factor in good teaching.

 

Well worth reading, and not only relevant to teachers in Turkey.
