Abstract

training of specialists who are able to effectively use a foreign language in their professional field. The

of forming a pedagogical university students’ foreign language professional communicative competence
(FLPCC) through Content-Language Integrated Learning (CLIL). In accordance with this, in the scientific
work the concept of communicative competence is considered and the importance of the formation of
FLPCC and the specifics of the CLIL technology are studied. In addition, the main components of the

presented in order to form communication skills in English in the professional field. Content-Language
Integrated Learning models are one of the most effective and popular methods for implementing an

the formation of knowledge.»

The effectiveness of CLIL teaching and learning in organic chemistry classes was compared and evaluated

learning outcomes among intermediate English learners.
