- In recent years, the field of Teaching English as a Foreign Language has developed into a dynamic worldwide community of language teaching professionals that seeks to improve the quality of language learning through Lesson Study. This paper presents the implementation of Lesson Study in a TEFL class as an effort of evolving students' interaction during learning processes. Due to the function of English as a foreign language in Indonesia, English becomes both material to learn and a medium of Instruction. Consequently, the students are demanded to not only be able to comprehend it as a learning subject but also as a means of communication. Some problems which deals with how English learning process can accomodate the students to optimize the use of English in class interaction arise. One of them is insufficient opportunity for the students to communicate using English. To cope with the problems, a Lesson Study (LS) with six cycles during a half term of sixth semester was implemented. The focus of the action was on making the students able to build a good interaction with their classmates. Both model lecturer and observers designed the learning process through collaborative-based workshops in which the students were accomodated in holding tight interaction in English. A good result shows that almost in all open lessons, the students were active and participative during both group and class discussion. Workshop techniques facilitated the students to not only discuss and simulate the materials with their own group members but also with other classmates.
