Most countries have a mix of ethnic or cultural groups, and Latvia is no exception. Multiculturalism is still a relatively new concept in Latvia, but there is increasing public interest in multicultural principles and values, including their application in education. This refers, first of all, to the inclusion and fair representation of different ethnic groups in the national education system. This paper examines if computer assisted learning increases students’ motivation for studying languages, in particular, foreign languages, regardless of cultural diversities. New technologies in the classroom has advantages but also limitations, as we recognise the shortcomings of educational technology we are able to integrate it into our syllabus and methodological planning with more confidence.
