Zámečník, Tomáš ; Klinka, Tomáš (advisor) ; Suková Vychopňová, Kateřina (referee)
Annotation: Title of the thesis: Gamification in teaching/learning French as a second language Abstract in English This master's thesis focuses on the innovative field of gamification and its application in teaching French as a second foreign language. Gamification, whose elements are gradually implemented into teaching through modern pedagogical approaches, is examined in detail in the work, defining the term itself and introducing its key aspects. The work also deals with the historical development of gamification, which is traced in both the field of marketing and education. As part of the theoretical part, potential advantages and disadvantages of using gamification in teaching are outlined. Concrete examples of successful implementation of gamification in marketing and education are also presented, providing a comprehensive view of the possibilities and limitations of this approach. The practical part focuses on a detailed analysis and reflection of specific gamification elements in the popular language application Duolingo and in two selected French language textbooks. These elements are evaluated based on their frequency of occurrence, quality of execution, and potential effectiveness on student motivation. In case some elements are missing, the work suggests their possible supplementation. In...
Using RWCT methods in French language teaching
Suchomelová, Eva ; Klinka, Tomáš (advisor) ; Fučíková, Milena (referee)
This work focuses on using methods of the Reading and Writing for Critical Thinking (RWCT) program in teaching French as a foreign language. The goal is to create a French lesson using these methods and to test it in practice. The first chapter is dedicated to the development of critical thinking in the school environment and describes selected RWCT methods. The second chapter connects critical thinking with current trends in teaching French, especially with the action-oriented approach. The third chapter focuses on how the development of critical thinking is anchored in curricular documents and on the expected level of students' language skills. In the fourth chapter, we use all these insights to prepare a lesson for upper primary school students. The fifth chapter reflects on the actual course of the tested teaching unit and feedback from students, adding further recommendations. We found that although the use of RWCT methods in foreign language teaching is not directly supported by curricular documents, nothing prevents teachers from proceeding this way. Teaching a foreign language and supporting the development of critical thinking require a safe environment, orienting activity on the student, cooperation, and formulating thoughts and opinions, creating space for natural communication in the...

In the theoretical part we will also describe the learning process from the didactic perspective, from the psycholinguistic perspective and from the perspective of the functioning of the two hemispheres of our brain, in other words, from the neurolinguistic perspective. According to these perspectives, we suggest several types of exercises, games and various other activities that could be beneficial for a false beginner.
