What Is Your Way?
(About tolerance and respect to other cultures)
English Learners are eager to ask questions about different countries and cultures, about the children of their age. Students are interested in making new friends, pen-pals. The Internet technologies allow everyone to connect people with the use of highly developed means. As for me, I strive telling my students all the best information about English-speaking countries and their people. Facing the challenge of misunderstanding - international dissociation "printed" marks on every representative of a country and culture. Recently, I recieved several issues of "The New York Times" sent from the USA and unfortunately, I was disappointed when reading the article "Haunting a 'Bear'" with a large photo of a 'great' Georgia's soldier.
We love children of our country, all cultures. You can't stand smiling at a cute baby, can you?
Every child is a part of all our future and our planet. I try to show my students the best side of the coin - the traditions and
progressive achievement of mankind. I am happy to know from my foreign colleagues, friends any news and happy to take part in any
collaborative networks, creating and presenting my workshops, meeting at the international conferences. Some kinds of press, politics
and other unpleasant stuff are not to be paid attention to. It's very important to have ideas to share, isn't it? That's the way I've been
teaching my students, and that is my way.
By the way, that's not the very information about my native town. The town is surrounded by rivers and the Old Town is on the isle.
