WAYS OF PREPARING ENGINEERING STUDENTS TO INTERCULTURAL COMMUNICATION
Burenko, L.; Ovcharenko, V.; Yakovlev, A.; Privalova, J.
The article discusses the issue of developing intercultural competence in the process of teaching a foreign language to engineering students. The intercultural competence is a complex of knowledge, skills and personal characteristics that contribute to the choice of adequate solutions of communicative tasks and effective intercultural interaction. In the course of studying a foreign language, it is necessary for students to learn to perceive certain phenomena inherent for a different culture in comparison with comparable phenomena of the native culture as well as analyze communication failures in intercultural communication and, if possible, avoid or clarify them. The authors claim that the development of students motivation for independent research of other cultures is more important than foreign culture knowledge. The authors conclude that the success of language training in preparing students for intercultural communication largely depends on the choice of teaching methods. The authors suggest their methods and propose to devise assignments based on the principles of consciousness and activity in teaching foreign languages. Some tasks that contribute to improving students intercultural communicative competence are presented.
