The most significant segment of life in a multicultural and multi-religious society is an advanced form of instruction in the classroom. In fact, the classroom is a micro level reflection of society as it is the place in which the understanding and acceptance of cultural and religion differences and the mutual respect among the members of different communities are the very foundations for building models of behaviour. With this realization on mind, the accent of the paper is placed upon the realization of a successful communication between the teacher and the students and the creation of a favourable socio-emotional atmosphere in the classroom, both based on respect, appreciation, understanding, and cooperation as important prerequisites for promoting multiculturalism in one of the earliest settings of multicultural community – the classroom. The attention in the paper is drawn upon the capability of the teacher to be empathetic with the students, and his/her skills to make students enjoy the atmosphere, to satisfy their need for distinguishing themselves, to enable them have the same opportunities for their accomplishments, to satisfy their need for acceptance and recognition within the classroom, to provide each with a place and position within the classroom, to enable them develop self-confidence, etc. In line with that, our paper provides various techniques with specific activities which largely improve the atmosphere in class towards acceptance of differences via equal and unbiased interactive communication between the students and the teacher, as well as between the students themselves.
