This is a report based on a general survey given to undergraduate students and professors at Toyohashi University of Technology (TUT) about English education at TUT. Regarding students, the main purposes of the survey, conducted in the fall of 2005, were to find how students had studied English before enrolling in TUT, what the students thought of English teaching and learning at TUT, and how important they thought English was for their majors. As for the survey to professors, the main purposes were finding out instructor attitudes toward the teaching and learning of English at TUT and how necessary they felt the acquisition of English was for their students. In this study, attention is paid to the differences of awareness and attitudes between the professors and students toward English teaching and learning. Based on the results of this study, discussions on and refinements to the current English curriculum will be made in the near future at TUT with the aim of raising student English fluency, particularly in the areas of written and oral communication ability.
