In a migration society, it is important to bring different cultures into dialogue with each other. Children’s experiences and ideas are often tied to their everyday language. Teachers support children in finding individual ways to use educational language in order to present facts and contexts in a linguistically appropriate manner. A conscious approach to linguistic and cultural diversity requires teachers and learners to grow in their understanding of different cultural influences that enter the classroom. This intercultural approach corresponds to multi-perspective, content-, and language-integrated teaching and learning in a multilingual context.
