The foreign languages curriculum has undergone many changes, especially in regard to its objectives and teaching methodology. More often than not, methodology is criticized and it is this criticism which leads to the development of new methodology. As yet, there has been no proof that one method is the best. In light of this, I am proposing a method which can be considered as an alternative to any meth­od or approach currently in use. This method, which seeks to integrate language and culture was used during the semester in which I had my student-teaching experience. Based on the daily responses of the students and their comments at the end of the semester, I believe this method is a workable one which may help to make foreign-language learning more inter­ esting and challenging.
