Eventhough the world seems to have grown together and diligently keeps on befriending one another nowadays (social media platforms) I have come across cultural prejudice and misconceptions when dealing with or talking about other nationalities. One of the things that I can derive from, is my personal life and the experiences that I have made with this subject inside and outside the classroom. Growing up in Switzerland has given me quite a broad perspective on cultural diversity (french, italian, Alsatian, Turkish, Croatian, Serbian and various other nationalities and descent) from a very early age. Their religious backgrounds, the differences of mentality and language took up and also influenced my everyday life immensely. It was fascinating. Yet, having said that, a culturally open and transparent classrooms wasn't a regularity growing up. When glancing over the classroom, one could immediately detect the different groups of kids that belonged to the same country and/or spoke the same language. There wasn't much education or incorporation of all the various nationalities seated in the classroom. The kids tended to keep to their own group before and especially after class. Hearing each group talking to one another in their respective native languages, was enticing and I quickly developed a fascination for languages and nationalities. Being an American, I belonged to a minority (or even a rarity) that couldn't automatically be placed. It seemed at first, as if they didn't know what to do with me and there was a certain unease. We all could communicate though Swiss German, so there was no real language barrier that would've explained the inhibitions. As time went by those inhibitions became less and we befriended one another but it was apparent that cultural socialization is a difficulty when your nationality belongs to a minority or is nonexistent in your peer group. I am certain of the fact that we as human beings have the natural tendency/instinct to gather and stay with our own kind. Strengthened by our own (familiar) group. Yet, the whole world is matched, linked and has grown together. Today status counts/means more than appearances or ethnicity. Real socialization though begins with the real life experience of, for example, being exposes to real lives and what makes them different to us and if there is even that much difference. The classroom is therefor and will become even more so, a vital and ideal place to exercise cultural sensitivity in combination with education. When teachers included the different cultural background of their students into the lessons (by for example choosing subjects that involve the students various countries and/or current events), there is a chance for real exchange and a more diverse lesson. In language classes that have multilingual students, there should be special care taken and interest shown to the cultural background, as most students will feel estranged enough as it is. There are mostly no familiar sounds/words and therefor trying to get to know them and their countries can help to loosen up and open the atmosphere in class. Students will feel more accepted and appreciated and that will strengthen their confidence, which in the end will encourage them to speak up and take in content more easily. I think that having
