Since English has become the international language, there are varieties of English in which the British and American English are no longer the standard of ‘correct’ English. In addition, the fact that culture is inherent in language learning increases the complexity of teaching and learning English. These raise a problem of what kind of English and which cultural basis should be taught in EFL classroom. In line with Smith’s proposition (1976, as cited in McKay, 2004) that an international language does not necessitate cultural norms of its native speakers but serves as the medium of communication, it is imperative that the teaching and learning English involves exposure to different kinds of culture in international context. One of the ways to teach English through cullture is by giving films. This paper addresses the issue of using films in teaching English and referring the cultures attached to it.
