Teaching is not all about how to make students master the subject and get high scores. It is also an effort to make a better world and to drive students to be much better citizens for the world. Seeing the current condition of the world, educators should show their social responsibilities to build it and to solve the global problems as well as to use education to foster peace and mutual understanding among people and nations. This turns to be a challenge for all educators including English language educators to transform their teaching and learning process into a process which does not only focus on equipping students to be successful learners of the target language or proficient speakers of certain languages. More than that, English teachers should be able to equip students to be more understanding and showing more respect to their surroundings. This paper aims at analyzing and explaining how to integrate education which focuses on global issues and problems into English Language Teaching. The analysis showed that peace, respect, understanding among people across nations can not only be built solely through diplomatic cooperation by the governments. These entities can be built effectively through education which reflects them by integrating some global issues to the teaching and learning process itself.
