In accordance with the present theories of foreign language didactics, if we do not pay attention to exchange of intercultural skill, the acquisition of language skill will not be stable. The truth is the inclination of a majority of language learning to goal culture is their first motive.

Here also several examples from German teaching in Iran is explained, as helps the acquisition of intercultural skill while the German culture and language can touch and handling each other in Iran and this handling causes innovation finally.
