Awatif Al-Amin Satti

Abstract


This paper deals firstly with some theoretical reflections about the cultural variation and its impact on learning foreign languages. Examples of texts that contain cultural aspects are presented. A comparison and contrast process between the target culture and the native culture is carried out which has proven quite successful in learning English at an undergraduate level. Most of the discussion and analysis were achieved by the students; the teacher is an initiator and facilitator of the task. All the aspects presented and analyzed here respond to empirical matters experienced by the researcher.
