Cultural identity is crucial in a multicultural country like Malaysia because it distinguishes each culture and ethnic group. Teachers, in particular, are aware of this concept when conducting a regular online English class. This study investigates the relationship between attitudes, responsibilities, challenges, and issues and their impact on English education, emphasising Malaysian Cultural Identity. The study employed a quantitative approach, with participants selected among primary and secondary school teachers by snowball sampling. The 35 respondents completed an online questionnaire that requested demographic information and survey data. They were diverse in terms of gender, colour, age, and years of teaching experience. The tool was adapted and modified into an online questionnaire from Spaniermen et al. (2011) Multicultural Teaching Competency Scale (MTCS). The data were examined using descriptive statistics (mean, standard deviation, percentages, and frequency) and correlation analysis to address the issues. According to the research, cultural identity has a substantial relationship with English Education - Challenges, Attitudes, and Responsibilities. As a result, one could claim that independent variables have a statistically significant effect on the dependent variable. As a result of the findings of this study, teachers have been encouraged to evaluate critical factors that may affect the classroom ecology, both directly and indirectly
