Creativity is one of those notions taken for granted but the moment one tries to define it, one raises more questions than provides answers. Nevertheless, it plays a very important role in everyday situations and in education. The aim of the present study is to examine English language teachers' beliefs about creativity, its importance in language learning process and the ways of promoting it among their students. The study included 20 EFL teachers and the instrument used was a questionnaire. The results indicate that the majority of the teachers perceive creativity as a characteristic which can be facilitated in everyone. English language classes are seen as offering a lot of opportunities for promoting creativity, unlike schools and general curricula. However, creativity in the classroom is seen rather as a “tool” for raising students’ motivation than something that has to be promoted.
