Encounters between people of different cultural backgrounds have existed forever.People have always thought bout things that were unusual in other cultures. But, those encounters were relatively slim in early days today, they are almost part of everyday life, At the same time, the interchange between cultures has jeopardized their very existence, and the emergence of a diverse culture, a fixation often referred to as globalization..
Primarily, what makes cultures different from each other is it looks at the process of what an individual goes through in an intercultural races, and how it adapts to culture changes in its environment.The individual learns its culture from its environment more then from its family, or from its social relationships.
People found, that over time the world market, would change character to adapt to production and consumption and in its material also in its intellectual process. The intellectual creation of individual nations become common property. From the numerous national and local books, there comes a world literature between all cultures.If the environment changes, our internal learning structure gets disturbed, and we have to adapt after a certain pressure occurs this can well be a small adaption to ajust our behavior so that is new.

Hispanic students speak English well enough to have a conversation,they can also do that with Spanish. Alot of cultures do well in exchange programs. Ariel washing powder, Gillette razors and Mars candy bars have entered supermarkets, giving the world the best a man can get. The globalaztion has not stoppedwith the Big Mac, the globalization is in all our fridges and stores.
We are connected and, most importantly, reconize we are growing together..But even with all of this, we are not the same. Somehow some people still refuse to become the world citizen that is so often proclaimed. Somehow the blacks are still Blacks, and the hispanics still hispanic. even though the globlization is taking place. That can not be denied. And with the globalization comes an influence on the national cultures. The world is connected, the flow of information has very limited borders, so has the flow of people...
