The current multicultural world is characterized, on the one hand, by the intense encounter of people from different cultures, and of various races and nationalities, and on the other hand, by a high degree of technological modernization in all aspects of our lives. The area of education plays, undoubtedly, an irreplaceable and crucial role nowadays. Language is not only about the mutual cooperation of people coming from different parts of the world, but especially in Europe, it is connected with the increase of problems connected with the integration of newcomers into the majority society of the new country. Foreign languages instruction and, in particular, its intensive support by individual countries becomes a necessity in today’s diverse world. The author’s research at universities in 2 countries confirms the importance of foreign language teaching promotion in the current globalized world.
