In this paper attempts have been made to point out that the curriculum should be so framed so that one may successfully negotiate the sometimes seemingly insurmountable gap between Language and Culture in the ELT Classroom. The world today is a multicultural world. People today are working in large MNC?s and having to interact as never before and that too in English. More and more speakers for whom English is not the mother tongue are finding it necessary to use the language. This has given rise to certain challenges and since language is often embedded in culture it is therefore imperative that one should explore the gap between language and culture. So this would involve a paradigm shift away from the traditional models of language learning?to more innovative methods of teaching which would incorporate cultural elements. This will lead to overall communicative competence.
