Novice EFL teacher development 
This paper is the summary and discussion of the findings from 
a questionnaire and interviews designed to find out what qualities 
a novice EFL teacher should have, both to offer recommendations 
to EFL teacher training programs and to provide guidelines for 
the self-development of novice EFL teachers. Our research is 
focused on what educational concepts, knowledge structure and 
ability structure a novice EFL teacher should have.

For the implications, we believe our classification and descriptions 
about educational concepts, educational knowledge and educational 
abilities might be practical worldwide in pre-service and novice 
EFL teacher programmes. And we suggest using Action Research for 
novice EFL teachers, in which reflection is very important.
