Living in the era of globalization, everything moves in accordance with the rhythm of technological developments. We can be everywhere in seconds and have access to information coming from any region of the world. On the other hand, the question of our cultural origin still remains vivid as much as ever. The special characteristics and the cultural differences of nations are lost day by day. Important cultural activities and achievements of nations are lost. For instance, the colorfulness of different languages, the most distinct characteristic of man, has faded.
