Abstract: The role that culture takes in teaching English as an international language (EIL) is a very delicate issue over the years, especially when it comes to addressing cultural contents in English textbooks. There have been many studies investigating the cultural contents in textbooks and teaching materials that represent the EIL concept. However, there are only quite a few that focus on the teachers’ strategies to address EIL with the help of the textbooks. This study aims at analyzing the cultural contents in English textbooks in Indonesia and how the teachers make use of the cultural content to address intercultural learning and EIL in classrooms. The textbooks analyzed were a government assigned textbook and an English practice textbook. Two junior high school teachers were interviewed to find out their beliefs, perceptions and strategies in making use of the cultural contents. The result of the textbook analysis suggested that both textbooks are highly dominated by the Indonesian culture. In spite of the textbooks analysis result, the teachers had a strong belief that their students should be facilitated with intercultural learning. Furthermore, the teachers also suggested their strategies in addressing the issue in the classrooms.
