This study collaborated with 372 students in three universities to explore methods of curriculum designs bridging the gap between typical English courses and global education concepts. By applying survey questionnaires and qualitative methods, the researchers investigate how globalization education is related to internationalism and "English Education" (Sifakis & Sougari, 2003). The 18-week research project introduced seventeen significant issues (e.g., UN 2008) and measured their noteworthy sequences from Taiwanese aspects. It contributes to English language teaching pedagogies under the current globalization trend. Globalization is a genuine and relevant historical phenomenon; therefore, educators should look at possible changes in the role of teachers, and incorporate more practice in inter-cultural communication, especially in English classrooms.
