The paper focuses on the assessment of crucial EFL and ESP teaching

process parameters of language awareness, learner motivation and learner autonomy (LA,

LM and LrA) in students’ perception perspective under the conditions of online (or distance)

teaching at the Todor Kableshkov University of Transport. The study, carried out by means of

a survey with questions related to the referred concepts, was developed by the author and

filled in by students. The research, which aims at evaluating learners’ attitudes about online

teaching efficiency, makes reference to previous author’s studies concerning LA, LM and LrA

exploration in face-to-face teaching. The analysis of online EFL and ESP teaching survey

results contributes to more completely revealing cognitively oriented, with language learning

strategies (LLS) application, distance teaching process effectiveness, and, thus, to better

understanding of relatively new online EFL (FL), ESP teaching methodology. To achieve the

paper objective, the following subjects will be treated: online EFL (ESP) teaching

characteristics, its advantages and challenges faced by teachers and students as well as the

essence of LA, LM and LrA constructs, tables with survey results and conclusion as to

distance teaching implementation will be offered to readers’ attention.
