There is prejudice in the modern world that na- tive English speaking teachers are better than non- native. In this article, we aim to reveal this opinion as well as to determine the effect native or non- native teacher has on certain language skill devel- opment in students. Many scholars worldwide have researched the question. They agreed that non- native English teachers are underestimated by employers around the globe. Furthermore, about 80% of all English teachers are non-native speak- ers. Our research demonstrate that native speaker English teachers are more effective in intermediate and advanced students, while non-native English speaking teachers are good for beginners. Further- more, according to the results of our questionnaire, native speaking English teacher developed more speaking, listening and writing skills in students, while non-native English speaking teacher ex- plained grammar and vocabulary better. The other thing we would like to present an interesting exer- cise that can be of great use to those, who learn native language in a country simultaneously teach- ing English or other foreign language. The exercise rise motivation as well as breaks the communica- tion barrier in non-native English speaking stu- dents. In addition, the exercise can be of great use to all language levels of English learners
