Teaching languages, especially teaching English subjects using literary works, is not something that is foreign to hear, but there are many problems faced. In other words, the teacher looks for teaching materials and methods that can arouse students in teaching English. The ultimate goal in learning language learning skills by using literary works is to be effective in learning English. Therefore, literary works can make students express all their ideas or abilities to explore competency skills so that they are easy to understand. After reading a novel with the title Romeo and Juliet whose author is William Shakespeare, the author finds that there are cultural values that can be used in learning English. Therefore, the author wishes to provide more lessons related to cultural values in Romeo and Juliet novels that can be used in learning English and language that can be implemented in these cultural values. This research is expected to be used as a motivation or basic reference in learning English to students, especially literary works, namely novels or dramas. This research is descriptive research. The data used are cultural elements contained in the novel Romeo and Juliet and the source of the data is by William Shakespeare with the title Romeo and Juliet. Data collection technique is documentation through cultural content analysis. The cultural values found in the novel are the situation of geographical location, customs, religion, and the last is the teachings or values of society. The results show that basically the cultural values in the novel can be used by teachers such as teaching vocabulary, geographical location, religion and covering four aspects of English speaking, reading, and writing skills. Text genres in teaching language skills can be in the form of descriptive and procedural texts (customs related to working hours and ways of worshiping God and ways of socializing) and procedural texts (customs of preparing food). There is also something that can be used to regulate culture, it can also be by understanding social values in society such as speech acts to older people, how to eat, how to move your body, how to meet new people.
