Foreign Language Acquisition entails becoming familiar with other ways of thinking, viewing and perceiving the so-called reality. This familiarization means relativizing the unquestioned so far. Students become aware of the cultural richness inherent in any social group and start thinking of possible ways of narrowing cultural bridges and crossing bridges. We think that the area of foreign languages is a perfect setting for conducting a research whose focus is on the effects of multicultural literature. Thus, this paper presents the conclusions derived from a multicultural reading programme implemented in a group of would-be primary teachers from the University of Granada. Our main goal was to analyse the benefits of multicultural literature in relation to the building of students’ individual teaching profile. From our point of view, this topic is of paramount importance to grow future generations multicultural minded and, consequently, more respectful and open-minded towards the Other.
