English so far becomes the main instrument in communication. It also delivers other things relating to ecological ones. Ecological education recently becomes the main issue because of rubbish and flood. Teaching ecological education in English teaching should be made as one of manifestation that language does not only talk about the language itself. It means that language actually attends to communicate anything new relating to life. Here it is about ecology. The reality so far illustrates that not many teachers in school teach ecological education. That thing is seperated from language teaching, including English. Based on the assumption, it is important and necessary to teach ecological education based on English teaching. There are several main points that should be paid attention. Those are the teachers’ capacity in using all phonemena relating to ecology to be inserted in language teaching. Teachers are required to ascertain what phonemena are. Banjarmasin as one of wetland city in South Kalimantan Province can be taken as material in language teaching. All things relating Banjarmasin as wetland city can and should be considered. Banjarmasin sorrounded by many rivers is one of the uniqueness itself. Using English to all components in wetland is the richness itself. When the language teaching is full and rich of new vocabularies, it can be new challenge for teaching, teacher, and the learner. Usually, the interestedness will appear when there is the new nuance. The learners are interested and curious in that. The approach and method in teaching certainly must be created in an interesting manner and creatively so that the learners are involved actively in that activity. Key Words: Teaching, English, and Ecological Education, and Wetland
