Educational technologies have become a standard part of the educational process and their appropriate integration into education provides countless opportunities for both teachers and students, from activation of students, their better motivation to learn, more illustrative explanation of the curriculum, to obtaining feedback, etc. For the creation of such an effective learning environment it is essential that teachers keep up with the digital age and respond to the changes brought by the constant progress in the field of technologies, and that they be interested and trained continuously in this area to develop their technology skills. However, from practice it is evident that there are still teachers who do not integrate technology into teaching because they are not able to use them properly.

The paper deals with the situation in foreign languages teaching in secondary education. In particular, the aim of the exploratory survey is to map the level of training of teachers of foreign languages during their university studies for the effective use of educational technologies and to find out the willingness of the teachers to participate in further training in this field in their workplace and to explore whether and how they find the news and trends on the integration of educational technologies. The target group are foreign language teachers of selected secondary vocational schools and grammar schools in the Czech Republic. An interview is used as the tool to carry out the exploratory survey.
