Currently English is mainly taught by homeroom teachers in elementary schools. In August 2019, the Ministryof Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) introduced a policy to increase the number ofspecialized English teachers(senka) in order for the realization of desirable elementary school English education.Meanwhile, English license certification courses for elementary school teachers are also being enhanced andteachers with various backgrounds and experiences in addition to class teachers who are not specialists in teaching English are expected to teach elementary school English in the future. The purpose of this study is to clarify the characteristics of teachers' views on English classes by teachers in different backgrounds and experiences. Participants in the survey were three teachers: 1. A specialized English teachers (senka), 2. A homeroom teacher who had previously been in charge of teaching English and 3. A homeroom teacher who had experience teaching English only as an assistant After watching a video showing an English class, the three teachers were asked to give their notice and impressions about what they saw. We extracted the viewpoints and interpretations from their utterances, of each teacher's class, and compared and analyzed what the teacher focused on and how to interpret it As a resu1t, it was suggested that a specialized teacher are looking at the class from a broader and multifaceted perspective, while homeroom teachers also have different perspectives due to differences in experience as leaders and learners
