Abstract

The article addresses issues related to increasing motivation and shaping the readiness of students of Russian institutions of higher education for future entrepreneurial activities. The authors, having studied the data of sociological surveys of GEM (Global Entrepreneurship Monitor) and GUESS (Global University Entrepreneurial Spirit Students Survey), come to the conclusion that at present in the Russian youth environment there is a lack of knowledge about modern entrepreneurship, and the Foreign Language discipline has a certain potential in terms of forming a number of positive ideas and competencies of future entrepreneurs. On the basis of the experiment carried out to introduce into practice the teaching of new teaching content, methods and forms of educational activity, the authors conclude on the success of the experience gained and share it with the reader.
