Abstract: The fact that Indonesia does not ratify The 1951 Convention of Refugee relating to the Status of Refugees and Protocol 1967 does not seem relevant to English language teaching (ELT) until it becomes a meaningful media for the NGOs to assist the foreign refugees in Indonesia. Despite the refugees' need of learning the language, the policy has indirectly placed English language teaching in a minor position. This paper will share the cases of English language teaching offered by two non-government institutions – Jesuit Refugee Service (JRS) and World Relief (WR). It will describe how ELT is used by the institutions as a media of psychosocial assistant for the refugees. It will view how far ELT principles can be applied and how much the impact of the state policy relating to the status of refugees influences the practice of ELT for refugees (ELTR). In conclusion, the paper proposes a model of culturally responsive teaching for ELTR as teaching in difficult circumstances
