In teaching and learning process there is an interaction between teacher and students known as classroom interaction. Classroom interaction can be broken down into two: teacher’s talk and student’s talk. However, in many classes it is common that teacher’s talk is more dominant than students’ talk. Deploying descriptive qualitative study,  this paper aimed to find out types of pre-service teacher’s talk in vocational high school classroom interactions, and to find out the type that most frequently used in that classroom interaction. The data were obtained from transcripts of the teaching video from three English pre-service teachers. The data were then analyzed and categorized by using framework of teachers’ talk proposed by Flanders (1970) namely Flanders Interaction Analysis Categories (FIAC). The result of this study shows that all categories of teachers’ talk occurred in the pre-service teacher classroom interaction with varied percentage of occurrence, such as Asks Question 53%, Accepts Feeling 3%, Praises or Encourages 7%, Accepts or Uses Ideas of Student 6%, Lecturers 9%, Gives Direction 18%, and Criticizes or Justifies Authority 4%. From the data, it can be seen that Asking Question is the category occurred the most in the classrooms which shows the pre-service teachers’ preference on using questions in their classroom interaction.
