许多人也同意英语不适合任何形式的国际语言的文化或民族。因此，英语不得与任何受文化影响的方法联系起来（Cortazzi and Jin 1996）。
It is a widely accepted fact that the role of an international language is being assumed by English rapidly. There are about 320-380 million natural narrators of English in inner circle nations where English is vocalized as an innate linguistic. There are 150 to 300 million second language individuals of English in outer circle nations where English maintains an authorized part like in Singapore and India. There are from about 100 million to 1000 million learners of English in the outer circle nations where as a foreign language English is being learnt. Thus, in the world today as a rough estimate there are about 570 million individuals who have an innate-like or innate command over English. Across the globe, any other language hasn’t spread widely and this has made it as an international or global language (Smith, 1976). However, labelling a language as an international language just on the basis of the sheer number isn’t a sufficient condition. Mandarin would be the language of the choice today in global exchanges if this was the case as it has far more native speakers than English.
It is on the basis of what one sees as the role of culture in language learning which would decide whether or not the target cultural content must be a part of the English language classrooms or not. It is believed by many that on both pedagogical and linguistic level of language teaching, culture plays a crucial role. Culture is influential in the choice of teaching methodology and development of materials in pedagogical level (Leki 1991). Culture plays a role in terms of rhetoric, pragmatics and semantics on a linguistic level. It is seen that English as a language fulfils all these criteria and is regarded as the best language for the classroom learning.
It is also agreed by many that English doesn’t fit to any kind of culture or nation being an international language. Therefore, it is true to say that English mustn’t be linked or be associated with any method which is influenced by any culture (Cortazzi and Jin 1996).
