This study investigated the teaching approaches of instructors who teach English Conversation in English/Foreign Languages Departments at universities in Taiwan. Via surveys sent to the conversation instructors in 16 different programs, information concerning the instructor's attitude toward the course, teaching objectives and pedagogy, and methods of evaluation was gathered and critically examined. It was found that most respondents had a positive experience teaching the course and were confident in their teaching approach. An indirect pedagogical approach was more commonly adopted than a direct approach as suggested by both the teaching materials and activities. Though some rising attention to conversation-related discourse and strategic competence was noted, grammatical and pronunciation accuracy and acquisition of vocabulary still received the greatest emphasis from the majority of the respondents in their instruction. Difference were also detected between Chinese and foreign teachers in their instruction experiences of and approaches to the course. Finally some suggestions are made for the ways the course can be more adequately taught was well as possible directions for future studies.
