Talking about recent curriculum needs broaden views as the new curriculum actually involves multicultural and character traits. Thematic based activities will determine the depth and the width of subjects employed in those activities. The need of adopting cultural values into curriculum made some scholars interested to adopt Indonesian culture which is very broad, into subjects taught at school. One example of cultural values is local wisdom. The importance of involving local wisdom into English curriculum may give another point of view in ELT. The non native teachers do not have difficulty in teaching Indonesian students because they are born with their own culture with which they grew up surrounding it. They can learn and take the good deeds derived from their local values therefore they can use their own experience in their teaching practice. Even English is the first foreign language in Indonesia but if the teachers are creative and do not attempted to trap into the idea that English language threatened Indonesian language, they can teach their students English language without losing their own identity. Frankly speaking, English has its own culture but if the teachers realized that what they teach is a matter of English language, we should not be afraid of losing our own identity as Indonesian student. Therefore, the importance of applying multicultural English curriculum accommodating local wisdom at schools will help the government to preserve and maintain local wisdom.
