Makale Özeti: This study focuses on specific elements of local and international cultures in two of the most widely used textbook collections for Catalan as a second language (CSL). Adapting a methodology used by Ramirez & Hall (1990), the study first gives quantitative analysis of the geographical references to Catalonia and the rest of the world in form of a large text (more than 50 words) or an image. The results show that Catalan culture is favored over international cultures, but that, in most cases, textbooks give a simplified view on both Catalan and international cultures. Catalonia and several other countries are often presented from a tourist-consumer point of view, without any substantial cultural information. Furthermore, the study suggests that textbooks avoid cultural comparisons therefore, giving little space for cultural understanding. The results presented in this paper form part of a wider research about the sociocultural models that current CSL textbooks transmit.
