Meditation is a practice of using a technique that helps people gain their mindfulness , or focusing the mind on their targets and vision. Besides, NLP stands for Neuro-Linguistic Programming, the practice of understanding how people organise their thinking, feeling, language and behavior to produce the results they do and modelling outstanding performances achieved by geniuses and leaders. Therefore, this study is to examine the potential of applying Meditation and NLP to engage students in English learning to improve their motivation and communicative skills. The research was conducted at the small-scale with the participation of 35 students. Data collection instruments include one learners' questionnaire and students' interviews. Results show that most students become interested in learning English and find speaking English is fun and useful. For instance, most students could get rid of the fear when they were speaking in front of the class thanks to the process of modelling in NLP and the achievement their mentally clear and emotionally calm in Meditation.
