Abstract: The study is to investigate Iranian EFL teachers’ attitudes towards successful learning and learner related to their experience, degree, and gender. To this end, 496 teachers (188 males and 308 females) with different experience, and holding different academic degrees were selected among different schools in Ahvaz, Shiraz, Hamedan, and Dezful. A 40-item attitude preference questionnaire was developed and employed to elicit information from these participants. Then, the obtained data were subjected to statistical analysis including factor analysis, mean and standard deviation, one-way ANOVA, and Post-hoc for the questionnaire. Results yielded one factor for the questionnaire which was named ‘Successful Learner’. Data analyses showed that teachers had different attitudes regarding successful learning and learner, and then, teachers’ gender and degrees had not significant effects on their attitudes, but their experience was effective on their views regarding good learning./L/Keywords: Iranian EFL teachers’ attitudes; successful learning and learner; educational experience; academic degree; gender.
