Abstract : This study is an effort towards examining the relationship between cultural knowledge, language proficiency and EFL learners' metaphorical competence. The subjects were 120 EFL learners studying at SADR English Language Teaching Center, ranging from 19-25 years of age. Their English proficiency varies from Elementary to Advanced levels which was estimated by an OPT (Oxford Placement Test). In order for the researcher to understand their level of familiarity with the target language culture, participants were asked to be interviewed for about five minutes. Thereafter, the students were administered a researcher made test which assessed their metaphorical competence. The test contained ten concepts and each concept contained five metaphors with their Persian equivalents written in English. Having two scores in hand, the researcher was able to see whether there is any significant relationship between the students' language proficiency and their metaphorical competence. To analyze the quantitative data gained from the OPT and the researcher-made test, SPSS software package was applied which calculated the degree of correlation between participants' language proficiency and their metaphorical competence. Moreover, the statistical procedure of one-way ANOVA was put to use to determine the relationship between learners' metaphorical competence and their language proficiency. The findings revealed that both EFL learners' cultural knowledge and their metaphorical competence influenced their use of metaphors in the sense that the more proficient the EFL learners were in English language, the more metaphorically competent they would be. The conclusions indicate that there is a significant relationship between participants' general proficiency and their metaphorical competence. Moreover, the findings revealed that, different cultural knowledge types of the language lead to differences in metaphorical competence; that is, the less the EFL learners' familiarity with the cultural concepts of the target language, the less their metaphorical competence..
