Teaching English is identical to teaching the students being good at grammar that finally aims to be able to communicate well in English. However, being good at communication means the students are not only good at producing sentences which are grammatically correct, but should also be able to produce acceptable sentences. One of the indicators that influence the acceptability of a language produced is cultural contents which are linked on the language used. Thus, it is really important for the educators to not only teach the student about the grammar, but also involve the intercultural competence, as a competence that deals with the cultural values that are integrated on the language.
