In Chapter 4, Ilknur Kazaz puts forward that language teachers must be aware of diverse cultures in the EFL courses. All culture-related dimensions of language need to be integrated into language courses. Her chapter provides language teachers with ideas and keys that can be practised in language teaching to create culturally aware language teachers. In addition to vocabulary and grammatical knowledge, the social aspect of communication must be taught and learned to be proficient in a language, confirming that knowledge of style and register, and the apprehension of sociocultural and sociopolitical elements, are crucial in order to function in society.
