Languages of publication
Using the background of current offers in language training for adult foreigners, the aim is to present the results of the research which was conducted in language courses for adult immigrants in both the Czech Republic and Sweden in 2012. This aim of the research was to determine whether there were differences in the situations in which learners in the Czech Republic and Sweden use the target language. The research theory was based on the authors who deal with language education for foreigners: Carlson (2006) Lindberg & Sandwall (2007), Chvojková (2009), Hádková (2010). The sample included 95 respondents from the Czech Republic and 222 respondents from Sweden. As a method of data collection, a non-standardized questionnaire was used. To verify the stated hypothesis the chi-square test of independence and contingency tables were applied. As a result, we could state that there was a statistically significant difference in the situations in which respondents spoke the target language in the Czech Republic and Sweden.
