Introduction
The theme of my course paper is “Cultural diversity”. I have chosen this topic because I am interested in this theme in general and it is in much importance as well. Because every student wants to know how cultures appeared in different countries. They have quite different diversities in every nation. That’s why I have decided to give full understanding of cultural diversities in USA, Europe and Kyrgyzstan and make clarification of their differences from each other. Cultural diversities have been treated in different ways of usage, that attract the attention of every student “Why do English vowels have so many differences in pronunciation?”. In order to fulfill these goals we must know the origin of vowels. In my opinion the theme of the work is very actual because it is very common in English language. These vowels serve a vital purpose in the language and help speakers and writers to know more about history of English vowels. The main aim of the work is to analyze, and to find examples of English vowels and their diversities, which are commonly used in English. The novelty of the work lies in the fact that Cultural diversities improve the speaker’s and writer’s knowledge that shows the right pronunciation of the speaker and understanding history of vowels as well. The actuality of the research paper is that the material and the results of the given qualification work can serve as a material for practical exrerience for students of English department of English vowels as well as they can be used for practical lessons in translations, home reading ,conversational practice and understanding the origin of English vowels.

Chapter 1. General survey of cultural diversity

1. Motivation of cultural diversity
Сultural diversity is the quality of diverse or different cultures, as opposed to monoculture, as in the global monoculture, or a homogenization of cultures, akin to cultural decay. For example, before Hawaii was conquered, the culturally diverse Hawaiian culture existed in the world, and contributed to the world's cultural diversity. Now Hawaii has been westernized; the vast majority of its culture has been replaced with Western or American culture. The phrase cultural diversity can also refer to having different cultures respect each other's differences. The phrase cultural diversity is sometimes misused to mean the variety of human societies orcultures in a specific region, or in the world as a whole; but these phenomena are multiculturalism rather than cultural diversity. The culturally destructive action of globalization is often said to have a negative effect on the world's cultural diversity. The many separate societies that emerged around the globe differed markedly from each other, and many of these differences persist to this day. As well as the more obvious cultural differences that exist between people, such as language, dress and traditions, there are also significant variations in the way societies organize themselves, in their shared conception of morality, and in the ways they interact with their environment. Cultural diversity can be seen as analogous to biodiversity. By analogy with biodiversity, which is thought to be essential to the long-term survival of life on earth, it can be argued that cultural diversity may be vital for the long-term survival of humanity; and that the conservation of indigenous cultures may be as important to humankind as the conservation of species and ecosystems is to life in general. The General Conference of UNESCO took this position in...
