The present monograph Czech as a second language. Methodology perspectives is written in the belief that education of non-native speakers in Czech schools is an important and challenging topic. The specific target group for this publication is those teachers whose classes include students with mother tongues different from the class majority (Czech) and thus often with a lower-than-native command of that language. It is especially these students who need careful language work, as the improvement of their linguistic skills in the language of school instruction has a direct bearing on their success at school. The book, first of all, provides a concise introduction to the general aspect of teaching Czech as a second language. Starting, in Chapter 1, by describing and defining key terms (legislation, state policy, general aspects of language pedagogy). In Chapter 2 it discusses main areas connected with second language teaching, CEFR, receptive and productive skills, sociocultural competence, textbooks, teaching goals and teaching assistant. Chapter 3 furthers our understanding of the field by focussing on European Language Portfolio, language testing and assessment and state exams.
