The purpose of this paper is to present the competences of deaf and hard of hearing (DHH) students in English as a foreign language – in the opinion of their teachers. There were 19 English teachers of the deaf and hard of hearing participating in this study and they represent 11 Polish and 8 foreign universities. The participants were asked to complete a questionnaire, evaluating their DHH students’ competencies in reading, writing, lipreading/listening and speaking in English at the beginning and at the end of the students’ formal English classes at the university. The results indicate a good potential of this group of students in mastering basic language skills, but also their considerable difficulties in terms of mastering a foreign language at higher levels. The article also contains recommendations of teachers regarding teaching strategies to improve the quality of education of this group of students.
