Abstract

It is generally agreed that learning language means learning culture since language is a part of culture. In English Language Teaching (ELT) context, the process of teaching and learning will basically involve two cultures: L1 culture referring to the learner’s culture (local culture) and L2 culture to the target culture. From this perspective, ELT materials can roughly be divided into two kinds: the ones orientated to local culture and the ones to Anglo or American culture. In order to make ELT materials more balanced, an English teacher may juxtapose or combine the L1 and L2 cultures in his/ her materials. One of the benefits is the learners will get broader cultural perspectives so that they will be more prepared to be a global citizen. This paper aims to propose practical teaching ideas in which an English teacher may include L1 and L2 cultures in his/her teaching materials.
