It assumes that people should learn foreign language in order to learn a new language but should not completely follow the culture of the language. According to Cem Alptekin (1992), meaning can be interpreted in language by two types of knowledge. One is systematic knowledge and the other is schematic knowledge.

Culture has been defined by Hinde (1987,p3-4) as “better regarded as convenient label for many of the diverse ways in which human practices and beliefs differ between groups.” Human development is a cultural process as human beings across the world differs in numerous ways, by their beliefs, traditions values and norms.
