Language and culture are related to each other. Being communicatively competent may require learners to understand the cultures. Teaching learners about cultural aspects may be effectively applied through textbook because it can be easily claimed that textbooks play vital role in English language teaching. The study explores the cultural content of two English textbooks for senior high school grade X and XI entitled “Bahasa Inggris 2017 revised edition”. This study aims to investigate what cultures are represented and how cultures are represented in the textbooks. This study used Descriptive qualitative method especially content analysis to analyse the textbooks. This study also adopted two frameworks from Cortazzi and Jin (1999) about types of culture and framework from Adaskou, Britten and Fahsi (1990) about Sense of culture. The analysis of textbooks has revealed some major findings. Firstly, Bahasa Inggris for grade X dominantly presented through Source Culture compared to Target Culture and International Culture. On the other hand, Bahasa Inggris for grade XI mostly presented through Target Culture compared to Source Culture and International Culture. Secondly, the cultures were mostly represented by Pragmatic Sense compared to Aesthetic Sense, Semantic Sense, and Sociological Sense in both textbooks. In addition, this study also found that there was an unbalanced quantity among presented types of cultures. Consequently, this study suggests that English textbook authors should include the balance presentation among Source Culture, Target Culture and International Culture.
