Abstract 

The purpose of this study was to investigate the challenges facing instructors at three Jordanian universities: Al Balqa Applied University, Al Zaytoonah University, and Mutah University when dealing with students of different sociolinguistic backgrounds, and also to know the effect of gender, experience, and qualification of instructors on their point of view. To achieve the aim of this study a questionnaire was distributed among 100 English language instructors (49 males and 51 females) working at the three universities. The questionnaires were collected and data was analyzed statistically using suitable statistics. The results of the study showed that English language instructors' point of view about challenges they face when dealing with students of different sociolinguistic backgrounds was negative, results also showed there were statistically significant differences in English language instructors' point of view about challenges they face when dealing with students of different sociolinguistic backgrounds and there were also statistically significant differences in English language instructors' point of view about challenges they face when dealing with students of different sociolinguistic backgrounds due to their qualification and due to their experience. But results showed that there were no statistically significant differences in English language instructors' point of view about challenges they face when dealing with students of different sociolinguistic backgrounds due to their gender. The researcher wrote some recommendations for future research.
