Abstract

English teacher at schools must be seen as a person who can speak English well. The students believe that they are the source of the target language. Thus, it is quite interesting to investigate the language used by teachers in the immersion school to interact with the students in the classroom. This case study was conducted at Mondial Primary School involving two teachers of grade 3.The result shows that the teachers have already used various language features in their talk to early bilingual students in the classroom. They are: idiomatic units such as sit down, blown up, listen up, write down, turn over; collocations such as listenthat co-occurs with to, dealsco-occurs with with, take co-occurs with a look; binomial expressions which areconnecting verbs with "and"such as shivering and freezing, listen and watch; the minor clauses (inserts) such as the discourse marker likealright, okay, well, now, please,by the way, what is it, I mean,excuse me; and the lexical bundles such as I'd like to tell you that, I will show you how, can you please, what do you know about, what will happen if.
