There is an urgent need for language teachers to prepare their students to be able to cope with disruption era. Language skills per se are not comprehensive enough for the students to be adaptive in the ever-changing society. Technological shiffts such as artificial intelligence and gene editing will change the landscape of future of workforces. Unfortunately, students in language departments have minimum contacts with technological and scientific updates outside their classrooms. An intervention needs to be done to better this situation. It must be decided to optimize the fluidity and adaptibility of language teaching. Language classrooms as fluid spaces can be integrated with different set of knowledge and skills, in this case scientific and technological awareness. The researcher has prepared a module consisting of eight meetings of English Debate class integrated with seven major themes in current technological advancement. The development of this endeavor is reported at this conference.
