Abstract

This thesis discusses the current challenges regarding the teaching of local culture in a foreign language classroom. Daily language contains unconscious cultural cues and insights. Language is one’s means of social understanding, (Kramsch 2000). Language and culture are two inseparable entities. Therefore, learning a language is at once learning the culture of the people using it. That is why learners may have different reasons for learning a language, but when local culture is incorporated to the process, students will gain some much more. This thesis deals with the need to implement Literature courses by including local as well as foreign cultural elements. By so doing both the Literature teachers and students get embarked on Literary adventure in which they can compare and/or contrast cultural items from different contexts as expressed in the different literary genres.
