This paper discusses the challenges of ensuring equal access to education for diverse students in English speaking classrooms and the potential benefits of using culturally and linguistically responsive pedagogy (CLRP). The study aims to investigate the use of CLRP in English speaking classrooms, its impact on student learning outcomes, teacher pedagogy, and classroom dynamics. The research used a qualitative case study approach involving interviews with teachers, classroom observations, and a CLRP-incorporated lesson plan. The findings suggest that CLRP positively impacted students’ motivation, engagement, and speaking skills, and helped bridge cultural differences. The study provides insights into the potential benefits of incorporating CLRP in English language classrooms in Malaysia and offers recommendations for teachers and policymakers on how to effectively integrate CLRP practices into their pedagogy.
