The language learning experience should be combined with explicit cultural instruction designed to provide students with specific information about life in the United States and to increase their understanding of American values and behavior. (Ackerberg and Comer, 1986) Consider ways that you can incorporate culture into your teaching on a daily basis. As you do so, you will empower your students with the cultural knowledge and understanding they need to be communicatively competent.
