In our Upper Intermediate class we have been graced with students from a number of countries. Having such diversity is incredibly useful because we are able to expand our understanding of different cultures as well as cultural norms. We decided to pair up and have a serious discussion about these “differences” and hopefully discover some similarities in the process. We hope you will feel more educated about the differences after reading this. And we hope like us, you’ll celebrate the diversity that we have on Earth.
