Summary/Abstract: The article contains a review of approaches to the teaching of culture in language pedagogy as well as reflections on aspects of culture included in various foreign language teaching methods. New trends in the educational policy of the Council of Europe and the European Union are also presented, special emphasis being given to the concepts of sociocultural knowledge and intercultural competence. The author discusses the role of intercultural competence in the teaching of the so-called international languages vs. the so-called non-international foreign languages as well as the place of culture in foreign language instruction provided for a variety of communicative purposes. Against this background curricular documents and teaching materials are then analysed, including their reflection in the practice of language teaching. The author presents conclusions for language policy and implications for future research.
