|Multilingualism and Multiculturalism
Multilingualism is a 21st century trend, where in a mosaic borderless world to create business partnerships or communicate with neighbors or to conduct educational research most people feel the need of learning not just one but multiple languages. While multilingualism is becoming a social phenomenon governed by the needs of globalization and cultural openness, teaching a second languages is among one of the fastest growing career opportunities across the globe! As boundaries between countries are fading away, governments, corporations, businesses and educational institutions across the globe are finding it vital to be multilingual. Multilingualism offers an access and exposure to different cultures creating an environment of greater tolerance and open-mindedness promoting cultural respect and understanding.
|United States was the first country in the world to adopt Multiculturalism as an official policy and by doing so USA affirmed the value and dignity of all US citizens regardless of their racial or ethnic origins, their languages, or their religious affiliations. Acceptance gives Americans a feeling of security and self-confidence, making them more open to, and accepting of diverse cultures. Our experience has shown that multiculturalism encourages racial and ethnical harmony with diversified cross-cultural understanding as a national asset. Recent advances in technology have made international communications more important than ever. America ranks amongst the highest nations to have citizens who speak multiple languages. This has significantly increased USA’s ability as a nation to participate globally in areas of education, peace keeping missions, trade and diplomacy.|
