The data from the questionnaire were analyzed by using SPSS program while FGD's data were transcribed to collect the answer to support the statement from the questionnaire.The findings showed that pre-service teachers were exciting to have English as the medium of instruction in their classroom. However, they also welcome their L1 (Bahasa Indonesia). In addition, they preferred having English to having Bahasa as the medium of instruction in their English classroom. Thus, the use of both their L1 and L2 should be balanced.
