In this article it is noted that the paradigm of a foreign language as a target acquisition becomes a means of achieving professional competence. The education system in our country is systematically reformed – require­ ments for learning outcomes change, training programs improve, the ex­ perience of foreign universities is adopted; there is also a convergence of domestic and foreign universities according to the Bologna Process. There are also activities for the development and improvement of the state educational standards of higher education in the competency format, the definition and classification of competencies, as well as their content are clarified. All of the above processes in education are a reaction to the phenom­ enon of globalization in the economy and labor market.

Learners improve their speaking by interacting. Communicative lan­ guage teaching based on real­life situations as well as collaborative learn­ ing serve best to reach this goal. By using this method, learners will have the essential opportunity of communicating in the target language. One of the main requirements is that ESL or EFL teachers should create an English speaking environment where students have real­life communication, ac­ tivities, and tasks that promote oral language. This will occur when learners collaborate in small and big groups to complete a task and to achieve a goal. What are activities to promote speaking? Here is a brief description of the majority of these effective activities as well as some problems which the learners meet while learning the target language, and some techniques of solving these problems are given.

This article is dedicated to the study of intercultural communication, its features, as well as the problems and prospects of cross­cultural com­ munication. The development of anthropological paradigm in linguistics at the end of the XX­th century gave new directions for research in the humanities as «person –language – culture», «person – language – think­ ing.» Nowadays, many scientific studies pay much attention to the anthro­ pological factor, as well as to the study of the correct use of the linguistic units’ meanings by native speakers. To consider language and linguistic units in the unity to the human factor and human values in unity is a new trend in modern linguistics today. Problems and prospects of intercultural communication are also relevant today as a new direction in science. In this article we have tried to reveal some aspects of intercultural communi­ cation and to give answers to topical questions.

The article is about to show the role of politeness in the sphere of interpersonal communication. Politeness is studied as a strategy or a set of strategies that is orientated towards achieving positive results in communi­ cation. The choice of one or another strategy by communicators depends on both outside and inside factors such as parameters of the situation, moral and cultural values. The given research extends and systematizes knowledge about the category of politeness as the most significant element of human relations. The theory of politeness of Brown and Levinson has remained the most seminal and influential starting point for cross­cultural and cross­linguistic contrastive pragmatics. Politeness touches on the is­ sues that are crucial not only for the sociolinguist and social anthropologist but also in the life of human beings communications. In the present study linguistic politeness is crucially conceptualized as a social phenomenon. Theoretical account of politeness provides an obvious picture of linguistic politeness in the communication strategies and distinguishes cases where politeness is communicated from those where it is not. It explains the as­ pects of politeness phenomenon. It presents an account of politeness phe­ nomena.
