The influence of ICT in developing ways on how to better deliver instruction has been regarded as beneficial in education. In language teaching, the use of ICT is an impactful experience. It is therefore the purpose of this study to delve into the experiences, perceptions and attitudes of a novice and experienced language teacher about ICT integration. Establishing similarities and differences on the experiences, perceptions and attitudes of the subjects was further aimed in this research. Results revealed that the experienced language teacher had more exposure to ICT use than the novice teacher. However, the novice teacher makes use of more ICT-related materials and activities in her language class. Both teachers have positive views on the impact of ICT on students’ overall learning and achievement. Further, the novice teacher views ICT use as time-consuming and calls for knowledgeable manipulation of technological devices. The experienced teacher on one hand, gives more favor to the advantages ICT contributes to language teaching, but views insufficiency of resources and services like Internet access as detrimental to effective ICT integration. Both of the subjects also had positive attitudes towards ICT integration in ELT and hoped that ICT use would later be strengthened in the Philippines.
