This study is an attempt to present the reflections of prospective English teachers in Turkey on teaching practice over their experiences and perceptions. A mixed-method research design was conducted through the use of a questionnaire involving a 5-Likert scale and one open-ended question. The participants were 120 senior students at ELT department of Atatürk University. According to the findings, prospective teachers are of the opinion that teaching practice greatly contributed to the development of self-confidence and competency in teaching and coping up with the challenges of the profession, and that they began to regard themselves like a teacher.
