Integrating culture in the teaching of language is an integral part (Atkinson, 1999). This might stem from the idea that cultural knowledge is essential for L2 learners to avoid the possible problems in the interaction process with the target language speakers (Liddicoat, 2004), as they might become more open to the differences (Knutson, 2006). In this regard, learning language does not merely aim at achieving communicative competence but also intercultural competence (Corbet, 2003). This concept is known as Intercultural Language Education, the content of which are considered as the most appropriate answer to globalisation (Gundara & Potera 2008 cited in Harbon 2010). To make the concepts of inter-culture clear for students, the aspects of intercultural knowings (knowing about, knowing how, knowing why, and knowing oneself) are explored in this paper through the study of texts under the principles proposed by Moran (2001).
