Abstract

Students from multicultural education are more tolerant and easier to accept people from different cultural backgrounds, as they get connected through group work and social activities, which enable them to acquire knowledge about different ethnic groups and cultures, religions and race. Cultural diversity in the learning environment is seen to have several advantages and impact on learners’ career, because they promote positive attitudes to functioning and living in a global society, reducing cultural misunderstanding and anxiety, as well as prejudice especially in very close societies where strangers are seen as danger to their community. Students from a multicultural educational background are highly impacted by high interactive spirit, which is a big gain in multinational cooperation. They can more easily adapt to changes and new cultural environments, because they are never shy to make contacts, and more open for conversations compared to students from non-multicultural learning institutions. My research findings have proven that the advantages and the impact of a multicultural learning environment on students are overwhelming and we can improve students’ understanding about cultural diversity in classroom through creative and modern teaching and learning methods and techniques.
