Abstract

This study aims to investigate the occupational burnout levels of Turkish EFL teachers by various variables. The general survey method was used in the study. The data were collected by creating a scale in the Google forms. The study group of the research consists of 365 EFL teachers working in the fall semester between January and March 2021.  In this study, the Teacher Burnout Scale developed by Kaner, Şekercioğlu, and Yellice (2008) was used. According to the results of the research, no significant relationship was found between the burnout levels of Turkish EFL teachers and the variables of gender, marital status, and economic level. On the other hand, it was seen that the variables of professional seniority, getting support from colleagues and administrators affected the burnout levels of  the teachers. The findings were discussed in relation to the literature and suggestions were made.
