Why a diversity concept? Why is that necessary – people from all over the world and from all kinds of life situations attend language courses anyway, so diversity shouldn’t be an issue, should it?
That is exactly the point. All people are different and this sometimes leads to misunderstandings and, in the worst case, to (avoidable) conflicts, both in the language course and in life. We want to consciously emphasize this difference in a positive way and equate diversity with uniqueness. We see differences of any kind, especially in our field, but also holistically, as an enrichment. We also want to make it clear that diversity is not about numbers and percentages for us, but about people as individuals. Diversity is something one lives.
