The respondents answered questionnaires and data were analyzed by using percentage, mean, standard deviation and chi-square test. It was found that 1) Factors like subject content, teaching method, lecturers, students and class environment have highly affected the teaching and learning process in English for Buddhist Academic Purpose class. 2) However, the result of the hypothesis test showed that those mentioned factors did not cause any problems in English for Buddhist Academic Purpose 3) Students have commented that since learners’ English skills are quite different, it may cause difficulties in teaching and learning process in the class. Hence, before starting the class, students should be taught Basic English grammar. Students must have an opportunity to practice their skills with native English- speaking teachers.
