Nevertheless, not only the school environment is responsible for the success or failure of the learning process, but there are other determinants. The social, cultural and even linguistic environment play crucial roles in forming active learners with rich knowledge. Therefore, teaching reading by emphasizing the culture represents a great challenge for both EFL teachers and their learners. The current study is conducted with third-year secondary pupils at seven different secondary schools in Algiers. It tends to investigate teachers. and learners. understanding of culture and culture teaching and learning, the way they handle it in class when they read, and their views about its place in their socio-educational environment. This dissertation is divided into four interrelated chapters; the introductory chapter which describes the educational system in Algeria and the place of English in the socio-educational context. The second chapter deals with some principal basics on reading and culture needed to explain the situation of reading in the Algerian context. The third chapter presents the research procedures used for collecting and analyzing data then, reports on the findings obtained from the research tools and provides both qualitative and qualitative analyses. Lastly, on the bases of the findings obtained in this chapter, some recommendations and implications are drawn for EFL teachers and learners to improve reading performance taking into consideration the foreign culture of the language.
