QANTARA.DE - DEUTSCHE WELLE reports about Multicultural classrooms. „An opportunity not a problem: Students from different nations, cultures and religions sit together in the same classroom. Experts at the University of Hildesheim in Germany are considering how teachers can better prepare themselves for this kind of diversity”,  said the online magazine.

„For a number of years now, the University of Hildesheim has been paying particular attention to intercultural teacher training. The university offers its students seminars and lectures on multilingualism and intercultural educational theory. It has set up a project called "LernKU(H)LT" (the German acronym stands for "children with different native languages learn in a team"), in which trainee teachers help children with a migrant background with their homework and promote their language skills”, continues the magazine QANTARA.DE.
