Develop a series of questions which alert students to these features, and encourage them to reach an interpretation or appreciation of the text bearing these features in mind.
Have students read each other the poem aloud at the same time, checking for each other’s pronunciation and rhythm. Do a whole class choral reading at the end.

Literature for cultural enrichment Most language learners assume that in order to understand the culture of a language, the most likely way is to go to the country where the language is spoken for a visit, stay in the country for some time, interact with the native speakers of the language, and use the language for daily communications. However, there is another easier and cheaper way to know how the culture of the use of a language takes place that is DOI 10.18502/kss.v3i4.1914 Page 28 KnE Social Sciences AICLL by reading and learning literary works such as short stories, novels, plays, poetry etc. Through reading a novel for instance, the learners may get cultural information because the novel presents characters from different sociocultural backgrounds. At least, the learners will know some different aspects regarding how the characters live in the world described within the novel such as their feelings, thoughts, believes, traditions, customs and so on. In addition, the learners will recognize how the characters speak and behave in their daily lives. In short, literature may be best considered as an important complement to other instructional materials used to develop the learnersâ€™ knowledge of language culture being learned.
