Multicultural Society - basic information
Multicultural society is  a society where people of different nationalities live together. In the world we can find people of different race, nationality and religion. We all have to learn how to live in tolerance and peace. People shouldn’t be judged according to their race, nationality or religion. We should try to bring people of different nationalities and races together.  We all need to live and work together. 

In every country there is the majority of people living there as well as some minorities.  Government should try to improve the situation so that all people live peacefully and respect each other. People of different nationalities have different cultures, customs and traditions.  Every country and every nation has its own traditions, habits and holidays. Living in a multicultural society gives us many advantages. We can share experiences, ideas and it also helps us to learn how to be tolerant and respectful to the people that differ from us. It is very dangerous when people are not tolerant enough because it causes racial unrest.
