Abstract: This paper is aimed at presenting how the future teachers have been trained to learn how to teach English professionally through the final projects which mark the completion of their studies in the English Education Study Program of Yogyakarta State University. For some years students have done classroom action research studies which then have been written as the final projects. The experiences on supervising the students‘ reseach as well as the careful observation have led the writer to the awareness that classroom action research studies have helped students build their teaching skills which are scientifically learned through the whole long process of conducting the research through its procedure. The final projects written by the students have developed the combination of the teaching knowledge and skills which are regarded as the key to the future teachers‘ professionalism. The curriculum in the English pre service teacher training has a limited number of the credit semester units which are often regarded as inadequate to provide the students with theories, practices and research on the English language teaching since it has been developed into a science which is loaded with huge types of materials. This paper describes how the projects which are usually done step by step under the supervision of the consultants may result in the learning of the students‘ future business i.e the English teaching.

She graduated from the same institution for her S1 and School of Linguistics of Macquarie University, Australia.
