The findings of the study revealed that :- 1- The perception of English language students toward their classroom environment was positive in the domains of affiliation interaction, cooperation, task orientation, individualization and teacher control. 2- The result of the first hypothesis showed that there was a significant difference at (α=0.05)in the students' perception in the domains of teacher control, affiliation, and individualization in favor of male students. The differences in the domain of cooperation were in favor of female students. On the other hand, the result of the study showed that there was no significant difference at (α=0.05 )in the students' perception toward classroom environment in the domains of task orientation and interaction due to the gender variable . 3- The result of the second hypothesis showed that there was a significant difference at (α=0.05) in the students' perception toward their classroom environment in the domains of interaction, cooperation, and teacher control in favor of the literary stream more than the scientific stream. On the other hand, the result of the study showed that there was no significant difference in the students' perception at (α=0.05) toward their classroom environment in the domains of affiliation ,task orientation, and individualization due to the specialty area variable . 4- The result of the third hypothesis showed that there was a significant difference at (α=0.05) in the students' perception toward their classroom environment in the domain of cooperation and task orientation in favor of students who studied in the city of Nablus ,and there was also a difference in the domain of teacher control in favor of students who studied in the city of Nablus . On the other hand, the result of the study shows that there was no significant difference at (α=0.05)in domains of affiliation, individualization, and interaction due to the variable of place of study . 5- The result of the fourth hypothesis showed that there was no significant difference at (α=0.05) in the students' perception toward their classroom environment in the domains of affiliation, interaction, cooperation, individualization, and teacher control due to the variable of grade level of the students in English . On the other hand, the results of the study showed a significant difference at (a=0.05)in the students' perception toward their classroom environments in the domain of task orientation due to the grade level and in favor of students who got (90%,8o%, and less than 50%)in English exams . Finally, the researcher stresses the importance of creating positive classroom environment which includes social, psychological ,and emotional aspects. In addition, the researcher recommends providing schools with modern learning facilities, modern methods of teaching , qualified experienced teachers, and up-to-date syllabus that helps students to orient themselves and keep up with their classroom environment taking into consideration that useful classroom environment correlates and improves significantly the students ' outputs. en dc.description.abstract This study aimed at investigating the perceptions of the English language students toward their classroom environment in improving EFL learning in Nablus district , perceptions of their teachers, their classmates and themselves, and their reported interpersonal behavior .
