Abstract: This paper is about a research on The English Department Teaching Practice (TP) students‟ pedagogical knowledge development. Among the TP sites in the English Department, there was one TP site that was not a formal school but a language course, instead. The site was in a Private English Institution. Until today, there does not seem to be much research done on TP students‟ pedagogical knowledge in this kind of institution. This was the reason why a research was conducted on this issue. This study attempted to find the answer to the questions: (1) What are the challenges faced by TP students related to their pedagogical knowledge in teaching English in in a Private English Institution? (2) How do TP students develop their pedagogical knowledge? To answer these questions, ten TP students who have done their TP in a Private English Institution was interviewed. As a result, there were six challenges faced by TP students, there were material development, classroom management, explaining the materials, making AVA, teaching various ages of students, and teaching various subjects. Besides those challenges, there were eight learning strategies that participants had in developing their pedagogical knowledge. They learnt from previous teaching, by sharing knowledge and information, from the courses in ED, by participating actively in teaching, through guidance from the teacher, from previous experience, by observing teacher or TP students, and by imitating lecturers or friends.
