Analyzing the influence of the language that we speak on the ways we express our feelings and discovering the links between different languages appears to be essential, particularly, nowadays, when the vast majority of the people throughout the world tend to change homes each year. In my opinion, it is fairly important to be able to convey emotions as accurately as it is possible. Anna Wierzbicka’s article, which touches the theme of multilingualism and emotions, throws a new light on the vital issues related with the affect that makes a language used for communication on personality and on perception of one’s surrounding. First of all, it is obvious that every language has been formed in different historical background and in various

This is to mean that the concept of bilingualism exist only when an individual of a certain variety has the capability to communicate effectively in an additional variety. More definitions were given by other researchers but still there is no an agreed definition for who a bilingual person is. Weinreich (1953) gave a definition of bilingualism where he explained bilingualism as having the ability for a speaker to use two languages alternatively. 2.1.2.

The elements hindering integration is the lack of knowledge about rights and responsibilities, lack of knowledge of the English language among immigrants, lack of professional qualifications, and poor communication. In multicultural countries, such as the United Kingdom, in addition to integration issues, they began to consider the wider problem of the relationship between communities and the issue of social cohesion. Category of social cohesion also began to be used in the context of social policy in the search for practical ways to prevent tensions and conflicts and combine a variety of groups in harmoniously functioning country that respects the diversity of its members and to ensure certain rights to everyone, including immigrants. The concept of "integration" appearing next to assimilation, multiculturalism, and segregation is based on a process of mutual adaptation between immigrants and the host society for example in social, economic, political and cultural aspect. Integration is a two-way process, involving the host society, which should create both a place for different identities of immigrants, as well as mechanisms for their consistent coexistence with the culture of the host country.
It is the carrier of cultural expressions (Hamelink, 2015a). Matei (2006), states that cultural heterogeneity is the exchange between different cultures, where regional and local ethnic identities are embraced even when global connections across regional and national borders become stronger. In order to cope with cultural heterogeneity in global communication, some skills need to be accomplished among citizens worldwide. The first skill that is required for intercultural communication is the acceptance of multiple identities, which means the capacity to recognize your own internal dialogues- the symphonies in your head- and the many conversations we conduct with ourselves (Hamelink, 2015b). In this globalized world, it is common to only reach out to people who look like ourselves and avoid those who are different.
With Brexit in UK, the election of President Trump in the US, and the rise of populism across Europe, the notion of multilateralism has been under fire as it is perceived as incompatible to the extent of violating national sovereignty. The incumbent US administration has consistently questioned the legitimacy of multilateral organizations such as the UN, WTO, NATO, etc as well as overtly expressed its preference for bilateralism over multilateralism when it comes to trade does little to ensure the vitality of the approach. On top of that, the lack of US support in areas of climate change, humanitarian development and security signalled the upcoming drastic reduction in funding as well as its absence as a moral leader. This could deal a blow to the model. As such, it also serves to highlight that in the current context, multilateralism does not connote, and benefit from the assymetry of power.
