    Immersion schools that are available in Indonesia are one of the proofs that the government prepares the Indonesian students to take part in the global competition. The immersion schools are equipped with the better facility to support the students’ achievement. In immersion schools, the lessons are delivered in English. However, the Indonesian government has not provided the teacher candidates who are facilitated with English skill. Therefore, the professional teachers who could deliver the lesson in English are limited. The aims of this study are to describe and explain the mathematics teacher’s lived experience in delivering materials using English as the medium of instruction at SMPK Tritunggal Immersion Program.

The subject of the study was a mathematics teacher who taught seven grade students at Tritunggal Secondary School Immersion program. To collect the data, the writer used observation and interview as the instrument as well as some related documents as the secondary data. The teacher’s understanding was interpreted through her mastery of the subject of the study and the language acquisition.
