The survey researchs the importance of communicative competency components in three contexts: communication in general (discursive and strategic competencies are highlighted), learning foreign languages at school (discursive and linguistic competence dominate), university teaching of teachers of foreign languages (in the first place is linguistic, on the second discursive competence).
