Abstract

Yanina Romanenko I. Gryshan National Technical University of Ukraine “Kyiv Polytechnic Institute” Kyiv USING RPGS WHILE STUDYING ENGLISH AT THE INSTITUTIONS OF HIGHER EDUCATION Today, a qualified specialist is commonly expected to master a foreign language or even several foreign languages. The language – whether it’s a mother tongue or a foreign language – has always performed two fundamental functions: learning and communication. The foreign language presents the only but substantial difference – it makes it possible to communicate not only between the individuals but can also make the means for interstate and international communication. Moreover, it’s only natural that along with that communication and acquiring knowledge of the different culture by means of a foreign language the learner refines him/herself, grows intellectually and enriches him/herself spiritually. To master the language one has to learn it each day not limiting him/herself only with the phrases from the common speech. We may see today that our students (future specialists) try to get a job in the companies with the foreign capital or chance to study abroad but, as it happens, they do not master professional language. To change the situation, the teacher increasingly start to use innovational methodologies used not only by the domestic specialists but also their foreign colleagues. Thus, the communicative approach to studying foreign languages becomes a methodological standard nowadays. Carrying out the above approach in the teaching of foreign languages shows that formation of linguistic skills is developed through students’ speech activities. To achieve highly developed speech competence while studying foreign languages (and it is English in our case) not being amidst native speakers of English is extremely difficult. In that case the teacher exercises an important function – it’s him who is to introduce real or conditional situations during the studies
