Abstract: Realizing the impact of English as global language, education system in Indonesia begins to shift the role of English in school context. Firstly, English is one of the compulsory subjects from secondary high schools up to university level. Now, English is becoming a medium of instruction for other subjects. At the implementation stage, teachers develop varieties of strategies by translating the policies with regard to implementation of the curriculum and syllabus prescribed. The present paper offers some evidences that in bilingual classes, and also the recently abandoned RSBI programs, teachers were observed to employ varieties of instructional language in providing students with sufficient scaffolding talk in asking questions, activating prior knowledge, and creating a motivating context, The instructional language used in structuring classroom discourse is dependent mostly on teachers' competence in English, as the language of instruction in these classes. The study offers some suggestion to offer tailored in-service English training that enhances math teachers'English proficiency in developing appropriate interactive instructional practices in bilingual classes
