Language is a means of communication and is used in a community that has certain culture. To be able to communicate with other community someone must be able to use the language of the community and understand the culture of that community. A communication problem may happen if someone is able to speak the language without understanding the culture. For that reason, understanding other culture is important and must be taught to students learning a certain language. Developing intercultural awareness is the first step to build communication. Indonesian English teachers can do that using texts containing English culture to make the students aware of the culture differences.
