Interculturalism: Cartoons & Asian Heritage Month – May Newsletter
Did you know that May is Asian Heritage Month in Canada? Canadians celebrate it since the 1990s. It is a time to reflect on and celebrate the contributions that Canadians of Asian descent have made, and continue to make, to the growth and prosperity of Canada. Asian Heritage Month is also a time to remind ourselves that diversity and interculturalism are a gift and a strength. And that is the reason why we still have to stand against any kind of racism.
At LingoStar, we took this opportunity to write a newsletter that focuses on interculturalism and the influence cultures and languages have on each other. In this issue, we’ve focused on the cartoons that shaped our childhoods across different continents. In particular, we’ve focused on the adaptations made due to cultural differences. We hope you find this month’s issue interesting! Enjoy!
