Abstract

This study aims at exploring the feasibility of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) in English Language Teaching (ELT) by analysing the perceptions of NLP-trained English teachers. The study applied a qualitative method based on interviews with 20 NLP-trained English teachers of high schools in India. To acquire an in-depth perspective of the extensive and comprehensive material available, the interview comprised open-ended detailed questions on the innovation, role, different techniques, and benefits and limitations of NLP, while also dwelling upon the different perceptions of NLP-trained language teachers, motivations of the learners towards NLP, and the positive changes brought about by NLP in the education sector. The researcher used a manual thematic analysis method to identify similarities in pattern while performing the analysis. Also, reliable studies from verifiable sources were selected for further analysis. Findings showed that NLP facilitated communication and encouraged learners of English. In addition, the finding strongly suggests NLP as an effective tool for developing teacher-student relationship and for promoting interactive learning environment.
