This study is aimed at describing the teaching style of the sixth semester students of English department (the intakes 2010, 2009, 2008) in IKIP Gunungsitoli to young learners (elementary school). Based on the obtained data analysis through document analysis (interview transcripts, field notes, photographs, records, coursebooks, and films), it is found that teaching English for young learners have the same pattern during three years with different intakes. Three types of media which are interesting, funny, unique, colourful, meaningful and authentic as well as treatment (nice words and gifts), and creating role plays, games and puzzles really support a good interaction between the sixth semester students of English department and young learners. However, practically the sixth semester students still need to learn young learners’ psychology to progress their skill to teach young learners.
