Program on Teaching Georgian as a foreign language is being developed at the Ministry of Education and Science of Georgia. This will be an innovative program with its content for the language education system. Standard of Georgian Language as a foreign language has been created within this Program based on general European model – description of Georgian Language competence levels (A1-A2, B1-B2). This means that Georgian language is included in the communicative field of world languages. With regard to language policy, this fact is of state importance. The standard encourages development of Georgian as an independent language taught as a foreign language.
Teaching and methodological materials are developed based on the standardized description. For example, Textbooks combination on teaching methods of Georgian as a foreign language was developed. It consists of two books: theoretical course and practical tasks. Monolingual set of textbooks is being elaborated for the first time based on general European language levels. A1 and A2 textbooks will be finished by the end of the year. In addition, set of various tasks will be developed. This means that foreigners learning Georgia will have a complete set of materials. This will encourage popularization of Georgian language worldwide.
