Mental Enlightenment Scientific-Methodological Journal


This article is about the effectiveness of using descriptive methods in English classes and professional-oriented teaching foreign language at a non-language university. It analyses the peculiarities of descriptive method, comparative-historical method and the role of linguodidactics in teaching foreign language at a non-linguistic university. The introduction of the concept of competence in the educational process eliminates the gap between the theoretical knowledge that has hitherto been used in teaching practice and its practical application, that is, when the student has theoretical knowledge, it is difficult to use it in problematic situations. So, Great attention is paid to the teaching of dialogue and monologue speaking competence. In order to improve the efficiency of teaching process teachers are to develop new organizational forms and methodical techniques. One of these forms is writing a report on a professional subject and its presentation. All the factors which influence the effectiveness of the process of writing a report and which contribute to the improvement of communicative competence of students are considered in the article.
