“Nowadays teaching English as a foreign language in public primary schools has become more accessible and possible in Mexico due to the implementation of the program PNIEB (Programa Nacional de Ingles en Educación Basica) in the curriculum in order to satisfy the communicative needs and make students aware about the existence of other cultures. As pre-service teachers, we had the opportunity to teach elementary school children, but during this process, we faced the lack of teaching strategies to manage large groups because none of us had some training about this issue. For that reason, the main purpose of this research was to observe some pre-service English classes so that we could identify, analyze and select the most successful teaching strategies applied to manage large groups of elementary school. Our investigation was carried out at four public primary schools located in one of the most important cities in central Mexico. The participants were 8 pre-service English teachers who were working with large groups and were teaching 1 st, 2nd, 3 rd and 4th grades.”
