Abstract

Information on quality teacher character is important and plays a role in the construction of training modules and teacher preparation. However, because few exploratory studies exist on the characteristics of quality teachers in the field of language education, this study aims to identify relevant past studies from various virtual sources through a hybrid literature review method, and to provide a comprehensive review in this field. The study sets out a research question and follows five systematic processes based on it. The results show a long list of language teacher characteristics that include (1) relationships, (2) knowledge and credibility, and (3) delivery. The analysis proves that the language of this list is still raw because it includes the universal characteristics of the teacher and a small number of characteristics that are influenced by external factors. A guide to identifying the true characteristics of a language teacher is essential. Further study should consider the aspects of identifying and differentiating the special characteristics of language teachers and universal characteristics.
