This study aimed at investigating Birzeit University EFL instructors’ and students’ attitudes towards adopting humanistic traits in teaching English as a foreign language TEFL. A questionnaire of 12 items was administered to a random sample of 77 intermediate students enrolled in different specializations and faculties. In addition to the questionnaire, structured interviews with five open-ended questions were conducted with EFL instructors from the Department of Languages and Translation. The data were collected and analyzed to find out the means, percentages and standard deviations for the elements presented in the questionnaire. The answers of the EFL instructors were also analyzed qualitatively. The results showed positive attitudes towards adopting humanistic traits in teaching EFL among both, students and instructors. The results also showed that having these traits while teaching EFL has very good effects on learning English as a foreign language in general.
