The disruption era that raises along with the industrial revolution 4.0 called digitalization has brought many effects for its changing. The era of disruption becomes an era of innovations in various fields, including education. One of the impacts of the era of disruption is the readiness of English teachers in teaching. This study aims to investigate the understanding of English teachers in the era of disruption, the obstacles, and challenges of English teachers and how the teachers utilize the era of disruption in English learning. This study used a qualitative study through semi-structured interviews and classroom observation by engaging ten English teachers as subjects of research. The results show that some English teachers are not realizing that currently, the world is in the era of disruption; they even do not understand what the era of disruption is. However, they do not realize that they use the technology innovation affected by the era of disruption. English teachers face the internal and external obstacles: (1) the lack of motivation in conducting learning innovation by always updating the technology that is relevant to the times so as not to lose to the technological abilities of students; (2) some teachers have a limited understanding of how to integrate technology into teaching; and (3) limitations of available technological facilities. Meanwhile the challenge faced by the teachers is about controlling the internet content accessed by the students. English teachers utilize the era of disruption by integrating the use of technology in English learning.
