Abstract: COVID-19 outbreak that has shifted the face-to-face (f2f) to forced remote learning challenged the CLIL science teacher to thrive in a new form of teaching. The face-to-face adaptation which is carried out by virtual meeting using Video Conferencing Software has pressured the teacher to provide appropriate and accessible synchronous learning atmosphere. Using the International Curriculum, science was taught using the target language, usually English. Teaching subject material using English as a medium of instruction to young learners requires more effort to make them understand content and target language at the same time as indicated by the CLIL approach. This research was a narrative inquiry participated by a young learners’ teacher of CLIL Science in a small city of Indonesia. Employing in-depth interview, the data were collected and then analyzed by emotional geography theory. The findings showcased the adaptations made by the teacher and the challenges she faced during the new mode of delivery. The implication of this research is that the experience of how the CLIL Science teacher taught the young learners using English would be new insight for other teachers in dealing with the real-time live lesson delivery during the COVID-19 outbreak.
