The 21st century is the era demanding people to know two and more languages, which provides them with more opportunities in any sphere such as business, banking, diplomacy, medicine, etc. Thus, mastering a language, in any case, means being able to communicate effectively and interact with individuals representing other cultures and speaking other languages. Actually, this implies that the learner not only acquires language skills, but also becomes the carrier of the target-language culture. Consequently, foreign language teaching needs to introduce a more sophisticated approach towards the element of culture in the educational process. It is high time to recognize the importance of intercultural learning or interculturality in foreign language teaching as culture is an integral part of any language course and should be taught in parallel with the language from the very first steps.

The cultural component has always been one of the most essential dimensions of intercultural language teaching and is based on the following principles: awareness of one’s own culture; study of the target-language culture; comparison of the cultures under consideration.
