Teaching English in Indonesia is rather difficult to do because Indonesia people have many languages. They are regarded as bilingual people or even multilingual people. It can happen because they master two or more languages, such as national language and local languages, when they speak with other people in different domains and conditions. In these cases, lecturers, teachers and instructors must think smartly to find the better ways in teaching English which are suitable for situation, condition, competence and performance of Indonesia students. Code switching and code mixing can be used to solve the problems in teaching English in Indonesia. In teaching and learning process in Central Java, speakers not only switch and mix codes between Bahasa and English, but also Javanese too. In classroom context, code switching and code mixing are often used by lecturers, teachers and instructors in teaching grammar. On the one hand, they need to explain grammar rules in English as Target Language (TL), on the other hand, they must also use First Language (L1) of the students in order to make students understand the explanation clearer, faster and thoroughly. In order to complete and finish this observation, the qualitative method was used. In this process, between the teachers, lecturers, and instructors and also the students were observed, interviewed, and given a set of questionnaire. Not only that instruments, but also data of teaching and learning process in the classroom was recorded to prove that there were code switching and code mixing in teaching grammar. Through this observation, it can be found about the types of code switching and code mixing they used in teaching grammar in the classroom, the reasons why they applied code switching and code mixing, what the effects of them for teachers, lecturers, instructors and the students in teaching learning process were. The result of the study can be seen that the teachers, lecturers, and instructors did code switching and code mixing because they were good strategy and better medium of instruction to serve and reach pedagogical purposes.
