Social diversities and humanities can be observed in the study of different languages. This paper has an attempt to teach the students selected reading texts prescribed from straightforward course book (C1) level. The main purpose of doing this search is to teach social diversities and humanities to the students via reading texts from straightforward course books in the EFL classrooms. This research took four weeks. Twenty-eight Fourth-Year (COE) students including fourteen boys and fourteen girls from Yangon University of Education were used as the sample in this research. It was conducted with project-based learning approach. Self-observation and interviewing in groups were used as research tools. Data were collected and analyzed with qualitative research method. Due to the findings from the research, language used in fourth year selected reading texts can reveal social diversities more than humanities to some extent, because the context in most of the reading texts emphasizes the social diversities. Nevertheless, language can reflect the social life which is bounded with social diversities and humanities in alternative ways. So, studying a target language or a foreign language is very beneficial not only for learners but also for teachers. In brief, all findings will be supportive for further research related to language, social diversities and humanities.
