Abstract

The article is devoted to the problem of increasing the efficiency of language teaching for the special purposes of foreign students in studying Russian at a technical university. Particular attention is paid to the training of foreign students in the skills of working with information using the latest computer technology. The conclusions of the work are based on the analysis of the results of teaching Russian language at the Bauman Moscow State Technical University, including various methodological materials, programs and manuals on the scientific style of speech. Due to the fact that information technologies are part of general professional training for all specialties of a technical university, and also provide a wide range of opportunities for language learning and real professional communication, the authors believe that a modern program of the professionally oriented language training should reflect not only traditional integration with special disciplines of students, but also, of course, integration with the disciplines of the Information Technology block. The authors propose an innovative didactic approach based on the integration of language training with information technology courses in the aspect of the formation of communicative-linguistic competence of ​​students in Russian. The structure and tasks of creating a handbook for teaching professional communication in the field of informatics relevant for students of various majors are considered.
