This study aims to identify the types of teaching instructions that frequently used by the instructor in university English classroom based on the teacher talk being used in their lecture session. Teaching instructions refer to the way teacher teaches the curriculum. This is the important element to help the students to get the knowledge and learn from the teacher. However, there is little research done on teaching instructions specifically used by instructor in university English classroom. Therefore, this research attempts to find out the types of teaching instructions used and how English instructor manages instruction in University English classroom.
