Abstract: Nowadays, many schools in Indonesia offer bilingual programs, which use English as the medium of Instruction acrosscontent, subjects such as Science. This new phenomenon brings challenges for the teachers as not all the teachers in bilingual schools have subject mastery as well as English mastery. This studydiscovers the challenges faced by a first grade Science teacher in a bilingual school program (a private elementary school in Salatiga) and theteaching strategies employed to deal with the challenges. The results show that the teacher faced both external and internal some challenges and the teacher employed varying strategies to help her address those challenges. This study can give valuable inputs on improving bilingual education programs in Indonesia.
