Abstract:   (563 Views)
This study made an attempt to investigate and analyze the teachers’ perceptions of cultural elements of New English File and Vision series. To do so, fifty language teachers from different private language institutes and schools, participated in this study. Twenty-five teachers taught the vision series and the rest of the teachers taught the New English File series. An intercultural competence questionnaire was applied to gather the data. The necessary statistics were done using SPSS version 24 after the data had been gathered. In order to compare the gathered data, an independent samples t-test was performed. The findings showed that there was a statistically significant difference between the two textbook series—New English File and Vision—in terms of how language teachers perceived their IC. The New English File textbook was found to follow more cultural items and IC than the Vision textbook series. In order to highlight the culture significance in designing textbooks in ELT, this study offered various implications for educators, students, and even curriculum developers.
