The paper presents the results of the latest research related to a larger project that analyzed the application of modern technologies in the study of English Language at universities in the Republic of North Macedonia. A total of 9 universities in the Republic of North Macedonia were covered by the survey, of which 7 public and 2 private. In this paper we have decided to present the results that refer to the structure of teachers who teach English at our Universities through gender, age, work experience and which disciplines they teach. Over 95% of the surveyed teachers reported that they support and apply the process of new technologies and modern tools in the study of English language at different levels. Majority of English language teachers (ELT) at the University level in the Republic North Macedonia are females (85%) while only 15% are their male colleagues. The results showed that these are
experienced teachers in their most fruitful and productive years for teaching. Most of them are between the age of 30 and 50, or, as a percentage, they are high 85% with
working experience over 10 years, that is, over 15 years, again quantified with 85%. All those surveyed teachers are regularly involved in English language teaching process, where the continuity of represe nta tion of 15% is observed in the Contemporary English language discipline, followed by the English Language Teaching Methodology with about 12.5%. While Contemporary English Language and English Literature as the most traditional courses are represented by only 5%.
