Publication A2

Language Integration and Communication with Foreigners (Level A2) (2017

We are introducing a new publication to you Language Integration and Communication with Foreigners (Level A2). The publication deepens knowledge and works from the concept of the instruction of Czech as a second language and builds on the already previously issued outputs, namely on the Reference description of Czech for the purposes of the examination in the Czech language for permanent residence in the CR – Levels A1, A2 (2016) and Instruction Videos, which are a specific tool for the instruction of Czech as a second language. Furthermore, the publication mainly reacts to the considered increase of the level of the examination for permanent residence.

The assignment of the publication arises from the tasks presented in the materials of the Method of updated Conception of the integration of foreigners - In mutual respect (2017 and 2018) and further from the task to elaborate the conception and methodology for the examination in the Czech language of foreigners applying for permanent residence at level A2, which was set for the MEYS by the Resolution of the Government on the Conception of the integration of foreigners – In mutual coexistence (2015) and as also arises from the subsequent resolutions of the government on the Method of the Implementation of the Conception also in other years (2016–2018).

The publication is intended for the general public, who come in contact with foreigners at the A2 or even lower level, and need to orient in the issues of language integration and to communicate with non-native speakers. The publication should help the general public create a realistic idea of the language skills of non-native speakers at the A2 level but also offers appropriate ways to overcome the language barrier in contact with foreigners.

The handbook is issued in electronic (PDF) and printed form to be accessible to the general public.
