|Abstract:||This study aims at compar male and female teacher's code switching in EFL classroom in middle schools of Ain Beida. To carry out this research a quantitative research method was adopted, a classroom observation was used as an instrument to collect data in order to determine which gender tends to use code switching more male or female and for which function code switching will be used by male or female teachers. In addition, two questionnaires were used: teachers' questionnaire and pupils' questionnaire that were designed to confirm the data collected from the classroom observation and to check teachers' and students' attitudes toward teachers' code switching. The conclusion that can be drawn from classroom observation is that female teachers tend to use code switching more than male. It shows also that female teachers' code switching serves the functions of exercising discipline and indicate the starting and the ending point of the lesson, whereas males' code switching serves different functions: to create a friendly relationship, to emphasize certain language points, to gain time and for translation that is to say the functions of female and male teachers' code switching are totally different. The analysis of the questionnaires indicates that teachers hold different attitudes toward the use of code switching in classroom positive and negative and students show positive attitudes.|
