Abstract: The study on the use of L1 in the Classroom interaction among the participants (between teacher and students) of a Second and Foreign Language (SFL) Program is not a new issue anymore. It has became a debate for a very long time. Teachers of a Second and Foreign Language programs mostly believe and also state a policy that it is a must for them (not only for students) to use the target language, i.e. English in this context, as a language of instructions in their classes, regardless whether it is a skill courses or content courses. As a matter of fact, teachers sometimes use L1 for a number of reasons, though they do not always aware or deliberately switch the code they use during the class. This study aims to describe the function of switching the code by the teacher from English (target language) into Indonesian (L1/First language) in the Poetry class during the teaching and learning process. The activities in this class are mostly lecturing and class discussion. In order to get the data for this study, the researchers will observe one or two meetings of a Poetry Class. The instrument used in this study are the recording and interview sheet. The data will be collected by recording the teacher talk and her interaction with students during the teaching learning process. The transcription of the recording will be classified then analyzed to figure out the situations in which teachers decided to switch the code. It is hoped that this research will give an overview on the practice of the common policy in the use of L1, in the SFL Learning process in one of the content courses offered.
