This paper studies the elements of western culture in "English Time" language training books, based on Bourdieu's practice and field theory. The focus of this paper is language and language training books that can be considered as a field which transfers the dominant group's culture to language learners and forms their habituses. In this research, we aim at answering the following questions: What kind of cultural elements exist in English Time books? How can the effects of these cultural elements be managed and the negative effects neutralized? To find the answers for these questions, we first studied 4 editions of English Time books as well as their auxiliary training materials (CDs, …) and extracted the elements of western culture that are inconsistent with our national culture. Then we performed 6 deep interviews with the lecturers of English Time books to find their point of views about the western culture elements of these books. We analyzed their comments to find out how can the cultural effects of these books be managed on the language trainees. The solutions include explaining the cultural differences for students during training and also preparing international courses for English training.
