Abstract: This study aimed at investigating the students’ responses towards the course entitled “History of English Language” in the English Department, learning whether the course was effective or not and also identifying some teachers’ views towards the course. In order to collect data for analysis, two separate questionnaires were distributed to English department students and teachers of Noakhali Science and Technology University (NSTU) and an interview was conducted with teachers in the English Department. The major findings of this study revealed that teachers and students provided similar views about the importance of knowing the history of English, the content of the course and the essentiality of the course in graduation level at non-native countries. Some differences between teachers’ and students’ opinions regarding the course including the effectiveness of the course have also been found in this study. Finally, some recommendations have been provided to fill the gap between the teachers’ and the students’ opinions in order to ensure the effectiveness of the course in the syllabus of English department in non-native countries like Bangladesh.
