Abstract

The paper deals with the professional activity modeling technology on the example of case-study method focused on forming communicative competence of non-linguistic students, enhancement of professional outlook, forming of group work skills, and intercultural communication development. The discipline “Foreign language” is being structured on the basis of a modular system. As a structural unit, the module is characterized by goals setting, problematic presentation of curriculum materials, tasks for project activities, and application of intermediate tests. The main task of foreign languages teachers is to organize activities in cooperation with students, to apply active teaching methods that simulate situations of professional communication, to promote the acquisition of communication skills in the field of foreign language and forming a professional foreign language communicative competence.

The paper discusses the technology of modeling professional activity on the example of an integrated lesson and case-study method which is focused on the formation of the communicative competence of students of non-linguistic programmes, the expansion of their professional outlook, the formation of group-work skills, and development of intercultural communication. Integrated foreign language classes with the participation of teachers from the professional departments are considered as a means of intensifying the process of mastering knowledge in the professional and language fields. Such classes contribute to the students’ professional outlook and glossary of terms expansion, group-work skills forming cross-cultural communication development. The authors note that to model professional activity in the foreign language study, it is necessary to create a single space for integrated activities and to ensure the competence forming in professional and language spheres, as well as focusing students’ attention on understanding the peculiarities of foreign language communication for solving professional problems. Thus, professional activity modeling in the process of foreign language teaching to students of non-linguistic programmes is carried out under the condition that language training and speech development take place simultaneously. The proposed approach can be used in the modular construction of curricula with a wide range of elective courses, as well as contributes to the foreign language educational process intensification.
