.J. Hendra Tedjasuksmana


Culture is often neglected in FL classrooms while it is important to
teach it to the students. In the EFL classrooms in Indonesia, teachers
should equip their students not only with the English culture but also
other ethnic cultures in Indonesia as Indonesia is a multicultural and
multiethnic country. It is English that becomes the bridge for the national
unity. This paper describes that students get mutual benefits through
learning cultures and it is teachers of English who can play a role of an
agent to promote a mutual understanding in the multicultural and
multiethnic EFL classroom in Indonesia
