The purpose of this study is to investigate trainees' perceptions of the efficacy of a newly developed immersion teacher training program for elementary teachers. A questionnaire and a listening test (TOEIC) were given to the 48 elementary teachers who participated in the program, which was held in Gyeong-gi Province. The results of the study showed that the immersion teacher training program was perceived effective in enhancing the trainees' overall English communicative skills. Trainees, especially the low level group, considered this program very effective in enhancing their English proficiency. Additionally, the participation of foreign graduate students in the classroom activities with trainees was found to be very effective for enhancing trainees' oral abilities and motivation.
