Abstract The hypothesis of this paper is that the use of Parallel Texts as teaching Materials within a communicative framework could prove insightful for pedagogy i.e. to enable foreign language learners overcome cultural differences. To this end, first we set the scene for the study in the introduction. Then we define Parallel Texts in the light of the available literature. Besides, we examine the nature of Formulaic Expressions and we shed light on their close relation to culture. Afterwards, we discuss the methodological considerations which can be regarded as a framework to accommodate our Parallel texts. These considerations are essentially based on ideas and concepts related to communicative language teaching. Finally, sample materials are presented in the light of the ideas discussed in the previous sections.
