Abstract


The author considers English for Specific Purposes methodology as a counterpart of general foreign language teaching methods. High school students may achieve significant results in communicative competence development, which is not the case for ESP, since it has never been a part of a high school curriculum. The reason for the gap between the target situation needs and the existing proficiency of learners is the absence of generally accepted criteria in content, methodology, course organization, assessment, and learning outcomes with reference to international standards. Language education is being considered as the study of social and pedagogical phenomenon which has a practical value. Though the subject of research was not new for Ukrainian scholarly circles, it lacked a special systematic pedagogical study. The above problem requires a special analysis of the experience of Ukrainian schools in foreign language teaching in the second half of the XX century in order to specify the modern conditions of the Ukrainian system of learning a foreign language and to mark its prospects.
