Abstract
While verbal and non-verbal interaction among peers, for example during instructional activities, represents a highly collaborative and complex activity, relatively little is known about the ways in which Czech speakers interact in English as a foreign language. The aim of our presentation is therefore to introduce the background and methodology for such analyses. After giving an overview of relevant studies and introducing conversation analysis as a theoretical and methodological framework, we will illustrate some of the procedures, underlying assumptions and methodological challenges on a short data extract. Finally, we will briefly introduce our research project (Classroom interaction in frontal teaching and groupwork in EFL classes in upper-secondary schools, 18-02363S), within which we are going to collect and analyze peer interaction using conversation analysis. We argue that the outcomes of such conversation-analytic research can contribute to better understanding of how speakers of English as a foreign language achieve mutual understanding and coordinate the production of the target language. Such findings can inform educational research (i.e. foreign language speakers use and learn the foreign language in interaction) and, more generally, sociolinguistically-oriented research (i.e. speakers take turns, repair problems in interaction, code-switch etc.)
