The purpose of this study is to shed light on the significance of body language in education and gather instructor opinions on the matter. Throughout the study, we looked at the background of body language, touched on its significance in education, and highlighted the cultural differences in it. The most typical body language errors were listed in order to provide advice to teachers, and in this situation, efficient body language approaches were suggested. A Google Form questionnaire was used to gather the opinions of 30 instructors at Tishk University, a private university in Iraq, on this topic, and teachers were subsequently subjected to in-person interviews. The analysis of the questionnaire and the interview revealed that the teachers’ judgments of body language were significant and that it improved the standard of instruction. It’s surprising to note that none of the 30 teachers who took part in the study expressed a negative view of body language; on the contrary, it was found that they were eager to learn more about it.
