teacher students of the Faculty of Education at Nakhonsawan Rajabhat University. This study also
examined teacher students opinions regarding teaching practice to be emphasized in the practicum

included two groups: students and teachers. The former included 90 fifth year EFL teacher students who
completed all coursework and enrolled their practicum course in first semester of academic years of
2013. The latter included two university teachers who have the different years of experience and two
teachers from secondary school and elementary school. They were selected by purposive sampling and
simple random sampling. Two research instruments were used in this study: questionnaires and semistructure interview. The questionnaires included two sections: demographic data and problems during
their teaching practice. Seven students and those four teachers were asked to be the volunteer of the
interview section. Quantitative data were analyzed by descriptive statistics (frequency, mean, and
standard deviation); whereas, qualitative data were analyzed by content analysis. The finding showed that
