The purpose of this study is to investigate to what extent the characteristics of constructivist learning environment existed in English Language Teaching (ELT) Methodology II courses and whether students' perception of the learning environment differed according to certain variables. The subjects of the study were 410 students taking ELT Methodology II course in the ELT departments of four universities. The results of the study revealed that the students perceived the learning environment to be often constructivist in nature. It was also found that students' perception of the learning environment differed according to the university they were attending, their expected average score from the course and perceived competency in English, but did not differ according to their sex and high school background.
