Popis To date Czech educational research has focused mainly on frontal teaching in primary and lower-secondary education, leaving interaction among peers and upper-secondary education rather under researched. In light of this, this article details a research project on peer interaction in the uppersecondary Czech classroom using Conversational Analysis (CA). The aim of the proposed research is to uncover the practices that the peers use in interaction during pairwork or groupwork activities. After a brief introduction, the article clarifies the meaning and use of CA as the chosen method of research, before presenting a review of some of the current research on peer interaction in the classroom. The research methodology, including the data analysis procedures, is described, before concluding the paper with a brief summary of the research and outcomes. It is hoped that this research project will add to the limited research in this area, and to foreign language didactics overall.
