Teacher beliefs have been proven to influence classroom practices. However, they cannot be inferred from direct classroom observation or by checking an inventory of pedagogical beliefs. The present study aimed to explore an EFL teacher’s beliefs about English talented program implementation by applying the repertory grid technique, a qualitative research method which has its roots in Kelly’s Personal Construct Theory. Through the repertory grid technique interviews and with the help of Principal Component Analysis method from SPSS package, six beliefs of the participant’s were extracted about this innovative implementation. Further examination of these beliefs revealed that certain societal and cultural factors have great influence on teacher beliefs and that some important curriculum modifications for gifted and talented learners were not given due attention. It is suggested that social and cultural factors should be taken into consideration when developing such talented programs and when providing in-service teacher training so as to enhance the efficacy of the programs.
