With the increasing number of students indirectly to the needs of teaching English to Foreign Students (BMPA) has also increased. BMPA can help students to socialize with local people, especially the poor knowledge of English. With such a plan designed for the systematic teaching materials to not only learn the rules of language alone but by paying attention to cultural elements. Accordingly a study conducted on students attending courses in English to know their perception of cultural elements that are applied in the teaching materials. This study used quantitative methods.
