A great problem faced by many South African teachers is how to incorporate cultural knowledge throughout their teaching, starting at the educational level of the learners. Learning from different cultural backgrounds can be made interesting and exciting if approached multi-culturally. Unfortunately, the term ‘multicultural’ is interpreted differently by many teachers for their own needs and interest, resulting in the term having a negative connotation for traditional groups (poor people). If teachers only look at the world through their own personal experiences, they are likely to ignore the cultural backgrounds of those learners who come from different ones. It should be noted that in this context ‘cultural background’ embraces also region, class and gender.
