This theoretical paper aimed at investigating EFL teachers' roles generally and the Jordanian EFL teachers' roles particularly. Recently, EFL teachers' roles became more complex. The essential roles of EFL teachers directly or indirectly are diverse, but the traditional role of the teacher is to teach. . There are main roles for EFL teachers that should be taken into account, in parallel with the educational role. These roles are inferred, such as social, moral, and academic roles. It is inevitable to have a brief look at such crucial roles, not only about teaching English, but also the various aspects or contributions in society that EFL teachers offer and shape in a way or another. Consequently, EFL teacher' role in society, in education and in curriculum, whether designing, planning, or assessing are all unavoidable when discussing such roles with different challenges that hinder EFL teachers from achieving their various roles. These challenges should be presented and discussed then they should be solved by different suggested solutions.
