Bilingualism fast, because his teacher was willing to accept his reality and help him correct grammar and make the relevant changes in his composition. The study concludes with the reflections of Ms. Montgomery, where it is seen that although she does not understand the cultural diversity of the student, it does not hinder her from dealing with the realities of his student. “These doubts led Ms Montgomery to think carefully on broad issues related to cultural reproduction” (Hammersley & Woods, 2014, 188). By so doing, she achieves to hasten a good educational climate where ethnocentricity of the school curricula becomes the focus of a concerted, genuine and intelligent challenge.The research method used in the study is appropriate to the nature of the questions asked because it creates the relationship between the researcher and the study (Atkinson, Coffey & Delamont, 2003).
