Abstract: This study is intended to investigate teachers' and students' perspectives and beliefs concerning the role of cooperative learning in enhancing english as a foreign languagelearners' motivation in the classroom at Larbi Ben M'Hidi university, department of english. It aimed mainly to answer the following question: do EFL teachers and students find cooperative learning benificial and effective in enhancing learners' motivation. In order to check this relationship between cooperative learning approach and learners' motivation, we have hypothesized that EFL teachers and students have positive attitudes concerning the role of cooperative learning in improving learners motivation in the classroom. To verify our hypothesis, we have conducted two questionnaires as suitable tools for our research which were administered to both teachers and third year LMD students of the department of english at Larbi Ben M'Hidi university, who have been chosen randomly during the academic year 2014-2015. Teachers questionnaire was composed of seventeen questions administered to ten teachers of different modules and students' questionnaire was consisted of twenty questions presented to a group of forty five students. Both questionnaires dealt with the different aspects and issues of cooperative learning and its relationship with students' motivation in the class.The results of the present study revealed that cooperative learning can be considered as a motivational tool for EFL learners. That is to say, there is a positive and effective correlation between cooperative learning and students' motivation in the classroom. This study also proposed a number of suggestions and recommendations for future research.
