Arief Eko Priyo Atmojo, Arif Nugroho

Abstract
In view of the COVID-19 pandemic and government policy to carry out online learning, the present research is aimed at investigating how EFL teachers carry out online EFL learning and its challenges. 16 EFL teachers volunteered to participate in this research through invitation. The EFL teachers were requested to make written reflections regarding their practices in carrying out online EFL learning and the challenges they encounter. Five of them were involved in a follow-up interview individually. The semi-structured interview was administered. Data coding was done and appropriate extracts were informed in the results section. To validate the data, data coding was done independently by both researchers, continued by several cycles of discussion. As result, the EFL teachers have carried out online learning through a series of activities ranging from checking the students’ attendance to giving scores on the students’ works synchronously or asynchronously depending on each school policy. Various applications and platforms ranging from learning management systems to additional resources are employed. However, many problems emerge from the students, the teachers, and the students’ parents along with valid reasons. Therefore, online learning does not run well since it lacks preparation and planning. Implications for better online learning are discussed. Future prospective researches are directed and encouraged.
