This conference also widened the entry of discussion regarding the facilitating the harmony relationship among human beings around the world. In the twenty first century, broaden perspectives for viewing the world is a must simply because each one of use could not get rid of the influence from the tendency developing done by the global society. The elements of the influence are definitely sophisticated as a result of the complexity of socialization among the diversity of people. For instance, various colors represent the variety of meaning defined by different races of the world. In this case, misunderstandings could be involved in the process of cross cultural communication. Therefore, understanding misunderstandings might be a worth issue to discuss in terms of encountering new cultures.

Speaking of effective communications, language using and cultural understanding need to be included. Not only the linguistic competence need to be equipped but the communicative skills are also need to be obtained for the purpose of becoming a member of the global citizen. The desire to master English has motivated EFL teachers on Asia to investigate how we can provide authentic English teaching approaches instead of traditional ones which focus on grammar teaching to enable EFL learners to speak and use English more effectively and accurately. Moreover, EFL teachers in Asia are concerned about why EFL learners, especially those Limited English Proficient(LEP) learners, struggle to learn English. In traditional English teaching classes in Asia, EFL teachers focus on learning English grammar by means of remembering rules. A common problem in language education is that it is more concerned with linguistic rules rather than with the incorporation of social and cultural knowledge that underlie the practicalities of such language systems. It is urgent for EFL teachers in Asia to create effective language learning methods and materials based on the diversity in the cultural background of the EFL learners in Asia. Through this conference, great deals of communicative strategies based on various angles to view the world are brought into the participants’ perspectives. Through the experience of using the target language, English, and cultivating global perspective, students at Transworld Institute of Teachnology are expected to be more competitived in their career after graduation.
