  • THE WAYS OF RESEARCHING ESP LEARNERS’ NEEDS AS SEEN BY TEACHERS OF
           UKRAINIAN UNIVERSITIES

    • Authors: Iryna Soroka
      Pages: 4 - 9
      Abstract: The aim of this article is to introduce different ways of researching learners’ needs and discuss the results of the research, conducted among Ukrainian ESP university teachers, to emphasise the need for universities to develop and implement a Continuing Professional Development policy for teachers of English. The qualitative method (questionnaire) was used to interview sixty teachers of ESP from Ukrainian universities to identify their awareness of the importance of learners’ needs analysis and various ways of its research. The results of this research show that the majority of teachers from Ukrainian universities are aware of the importance of learners’ needs analysis in an ESP class. Ukrainian teachers consider introspection, workplace tours, the Internet, textbooks and training courses to be the most meaningful learners’ needs. However, all surveyed teachers get information about their students’ needs by interviewing them. There is a huge reliance on teachers’ experience. The results of the survey have also shown that the majority of respondents discuss with subject teachers and students the topics, terminology, materials for ESP curriculum. This research has lead to the conclusion that the usage of different ways and multiple sources will increase the quality of gathered information about learners’ needs.

  • DEVELOPMENT OF THE FUTURE TRANSLATORS’ PROFESSIONAL COMPETENCY IN
           BILATERAL INTERPRETING: MODERN METHODS

    • Authors: Alla Bogush, Tetiana Korolova, Oleksandra Popova
      Pages: 10 - 21
      Abstract: The paper presents the research on the effectiveness of the future translator and / or interpreter training using modern methods which facilitate the development of their professional competency in bilateral interpreting. The authors analyse psychological and pedagogical experience, modern educational technologies and prospects for future professionals in the context of bilateral interpreting. The scholars substantiate the results of the initiated phonetic research (including linguistic and translation analysis of audio texts) related to the semantics of prosodic means, which constituted the basis for the experimental study. The research reveals the outcomes of the experimental study conducted at Ushynsky University involving the third-year students who major in the English↔Ukrainian translation. The four stages of the designated pedagogical experiment are specified: 1) pre-testing; 2) preparatory training course according to combined (interactive and traditional) authors’ teaching methods; 3) after-testing; 4) assessment of the students’ outcomes. The use of the experimental construct turns out to be practical due to these methods: cooperative learning, inquiry-based instructions, differentiation, professional development, technology and problem solving. The study also confirms the fact that the integration of traditional and modern technologies in teaching students to interpret information taking into consideration phonetic features of Ukrainian and English oral texts can help future translators develop their analytical and critical thinking, flexibility, agility and adaptability, initiative and entrepreneurialism while receiving, analysing and interpreting information. The detailed analysis of modern scientific literature proves that the use of the competence-oriented and context-centred approaches to the educational process contributes to the students’ academic success.

  • DEVELOPMENT OF STUDENTS’ FOREIGN LANGUAGE COMMUNICATIVE COMPETENCE IN
           CONTEXT OF INTERNATIONALISATION AND INFORMATISATION OF HIGHER EDUCATION

    • Authors: Nasiraga Shakhmurad oglu Мammadov, Sofiia Sokolova, Nataliіa Kholiavko
      Pages: 22 - 29
      Abstract: The paper investigates the processes of development of students’ foreign language communicative competence at universities under the conditions of informatisation and internationalisation. The hypotheses of our research: 1) in the conditions of internationalisation of higher education, the level of students' knowledge of foreign languages influences the intensity of their participation in international educational projects; 2) internationalisation of higher education creates effective motivators for more thorough study of foreign languages; 3) informatisation is a powerful tool for improving the quality in foreign language teaching at universities. The authors developed a questionnaire including 11 questions (closed and open). Respondents were 245 fourth-year students of Chernihiv National University of Technology (Ukraine) of humanitarian and technical specialities. The majority of respondents (89%) expressed their desire to participate in international educational projects with trips abroad; 44% of respondents identified the unsatisfactory level of foreign language skills as the main barrier to participation in such projects; 67% noted that the latest methods of teaching foreign languages should be introduced at their institution. On the basis of the results of the research, the authors suggest a set of innovative interactive teaching methods using information and communication technologies. The research results will allow increasing the students’ level of interest and motivation to study foreign languages and, accordingly; will provide the improvement of existing pedagogical approaches to the development of foreign language communicative competence of future specialists at universities.

  • THE EFFECT OF DIRECT INSTRUCTION IN FORMULAIC SEQUENCES ON IELTS
           STUDENTS’ SPEAKING PERFORMANCE

    • Authors: Gennadiy Goncharov
      Pages: 30 - 39
      Abstract: In the light of previous research into the correlation between the acquisition of formulaic sequences and language learners’ fluency gains, this study aims to investigate the extent to which an intensive course of direct instruction in preselected targeted formulaic sequences can improve IELTS students’ oral fluency. In achieving this purpose, the researcher explores criteria for selecting formulaic sequences for intensive instruction as part of an IELTS speaking preparation course, and outlines principles for selecting and developing tasks and activities for the acquisition of formulaic sequences. The methodology for our intensive instruction course was quantitatively and qualitatively assessed using a group of five intermediate second language learners of English who had not received IELTS training before. A body of empirical data was gathered in pre- and post-course speaking tests conducted in full accordance with the IELTS format, with the test takers’ performance being audio recorded. Recorded data were imported into Praat speech processing software to examine the temporal characteristics of the participants’ speech. Analysis of the pre- and post-test recordings using a number of temporal measures revealed a significant increase in the number of targeted formulaic sequences used by the study participants after four weeks of intensive direct instruction. Analysis of the empirical data collected suggests a beneficial effect of formulaic sequence acquisition on both IELTS students’ speaking performance and on their overall Speaking scores. The findings obtained are used to hypothesise to what extent formulaic sequences acquired through the course of direct instruction can influence test-takers’ IELTS Speaking scores.

  • IMPLEMENTATION OF THOMAS GORDON’S COMMUNICATIVE PEDAGOGY IN
           UKRAINIAN EDUCATIONAL REALITIES

    • Authors: Svitlana Isaieva, Mariya Leshchenko, Sulaieva Nataliia
      Pages: 40 - 45
      Abstract: The article analyses the possibilities of using the communicative pedagogy of the American scientist Thomas Gordon in the Ukrainian educational space in the medium of English language. The communicative pedagogy emphasises the need for special pedagogical approaches that allow teachers to interact tolerantly with students in the atmosphere of acceptance and trust. The goal of our research was to verify the hypothesis that CLIL approach while studying Thomas Gordon’s heritage in English, using authentic materials, provides students with the opportunity of deeper understanding his ideas and values. The experiment participants, future teachers, were pre- and post-assessed for the levels of English language and awareness of Thomas Gordon’s approach. Moreover, the efficiency of the language and pedagogy connection was proved by practice supervisors who observed students performance during their practical studying at schools. Due to the application of authentic materials, reading manuscripts in original, listening to Thomas Gordon’s speeches and lectures, students were fully immerged into the researcher heritage and demonstrated a better understanding of his ideas. As practice supervisors claimed, such students demonstrated a higher level of conflict prevention skills, class management skills, tolerant communication with children and created the atmosphere of trust and acceptance.

  • THE IMPACT OF TRANSDISCIPLINARITY ON SIGHT TRANSLATION TRAINING IN
           SCIENTIFIC AND TECHNICAL DOMAINS

    • Authors: Natalia Saienko, Iryna Simkova
      Pages: 46 - 54
      Abstract: The paper aims to explore the impact of interdisciplinarity on sight translation training in scientific and technical domains. The authors concentrate on the distinctive features of transdisciplinarity and explain the concept of "weak" (used as a practical means) and "strong" transdisciplinarity (complex impact through several levels of reality). 80 future translators/interpreters took part in the research. The results of educational process observations during sight translation classes are presented. Three levels of competences in translating and interpreting (high, medium and low) are identified to conduct the quantitative and qualitative analysis of experimental data during sight translation training. The theoretical and practical analyses, generalisation and mathematical statistics methods were used to stipulate the impact of transdisciplinarity on sight translation training. This research has clearly shown that application of a transdisciplinary approach gives future translators/interpreters opportunity to receive cross-sectorial training in specific fields. Transdisciplinary in sight translation trainings has a positive impact on the development of students’ professional identity.

  • DEVELOPING STUDENTS’ INTERCULTURAL COMMUNICATIVE COMPETENCE IN
           FOREIGN LANGUAGE CLASSROOM

    • Authors: Oksana Bahlai, Nataliya Machynska, Yuliia Matviiv-Lozynska, Olha Senkovych, Mariia Voloshyn
      Pages: 55 - 59
      Abstract: Current social and economic changes have significantly influenced the tourism industry worldwide turning it into a diversified sphere of activity aimed at servicing tourists and meeting their needs. As tourist travels continue to grow throughout the world, they cause extensive cross-cultural contacts between different language and cultural groups. Thus, higher educational establishments of tourism profile have an important task to train competent specialists able to interact effectively at the intercultural level. In our article, based on the experience of teaching master’s degree students majoring in international tourism at Lviv Polytechnic National University, we analysed possibilities of ICC development in ESP classes by means of flipped classroom method, role plays, discussions and a special course “Cross-cultural communication in religious tourism” designed by the authors. As shown by the results of our study, the methods and resources used in our ESP classes may be particularly appropriate for the development of students’ ICC because they provide the basis for intercultural communication, ensure the link between the learning and real life and thus make the development of ICC more meaningful to learners.

  • TEACHING UKRAINIAN AS A NON-NATIVE LANGUAGE TO NATIONAL MINORITIES IN
           UKRAINE: CHALLENGES FOR EVIDENCE-BASED EDUCATIONAL POLICIES

    • Authors: Oksana Zabolotna, Svitlana Shchudlo, Tetiana Medina, Ielyzaveta Panchenko, Dmytro Kozlov
      Pages: 60 - 67
      Abstract: Underachievement among national minority group students in places of their compact residence in Ukraine makes them vulnerable to educational failure. This problem is noticeable in Chernivtsi Region of Ukraine where the multicultural character causes peculiar behaviour in politics, migration, economic and cultural activities as well as in educational strategies. Owing to the fact that in some districts (Hertsa and Novoselica) the Ukrainian Language is not the mother tongue for most residents who are ethnical Romanians and Moldavians, about 60 % students fail in Independent External Testing after secondary school. This issue was taken into account in Article 7 of Ukrainian Law on Education (2017) which presupposed gradual significant growth in school subjects with Ukrainian as the language of instruction. The issue raised the research question: What approaches can be applied to teaching Ukrainian as a non-native language to national minorities in sites of their compact residence (where more than 80 % of the population speak Romanian in their everyday life)' This actualised the need for formulating evidence-based language policies in Ukraine. With the purpose of answering the need, Ukrainian Educational Research Association designed and carried out a public perception survey using in-depth interviews with high-school students and their parents, school teachers, local and regional policy-makers in education, local authorities, and national cultural societies. Based on the research, the authors give recommendations on approaches which should be used in design of curriculum and syllabus of Ukrainian as a non-native language. The authors emphasise the importance of the gradual introduction of the Ukrainian language starting from learning it as a foreign language at initial stages, with further switching to second language teaching strategies, and leading to bilingual education.

  • ART AND ESP INTEGRATION IN TEACHING UKRAINIAN ENGINEERS

    • Authors: David Pollard, Yuliia Olizko
      Pages: 68 - 75
      Abstract: The article suggests art and ESP integration in a foreign language classroom at technical university. The authors describe five parts of the art and ESP integrated project “Water treatment” developed for teaching chemical engineers ESP at tertiary level. Each part of the project combines art such as poster drawing, writing a poem, creating a brand and making videos with ESP purposes. The results of the pedagogical experiment conducted at the National Technical University of Ukraine “Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute” (Igor Sikorsky KPI) proved the improvement of professional language, engineering creativity, intellectual engagement and collaboration skills of the students of the experimental group. The answers of the questionnaires conducted among the ESP teachers and students of Igor Sikorsky KPI showed their positive feedback about art and ESP integration. The issues of engineering creativity, active engagement, collaboration and authentic material usage were studied as components of multidisciplinary and multipurpose art and ESP integrated approach. The concluding part of the article outlines the main problems which can occur while integrating art and ESP in Ukraine such as lack of time and materials for exploring art, possible sсepticism towards art elements in ESP.

  • STUDENTS’ PERCEPTIONS AND MOTIVATION FOR LEARNING FOREIGN LANGUAGES

    • Authors: Natalia Hromova
      Pages: 76 - 83
      Abstract: The article is devoted to the evaluation of students’ motivation for learning foreign languages dimensions. The analysis of the students’ sense of responsibility and readiness to clarify their needs constitutes the novelty of the study. 132 first-year students (21 males and 111 females) participated in the investigation. The research includes a qualitative data analysis of the students’ answers based on the grounded theory. The quantitative analysis of the data obtained from the questionnaire adapted from Gardner’s Attitudes/Motivation Test Battery defined the students’ motivational orientations. The study revealed the growing trend of the students’ desire for intellectual development combined with a practical approach to learning foreign languages. The following leading motives for learning languages were defined: “self-development”, “opportunities” and “necessity”. The students saw self-development as getting acquainted with the culture and broadening their mind to join the international community. Opportunities were associated with career growth and competition. The necessity of learning languages implied moving abroad for a better life or meeting academic demands at university. The findings suggest that modern students want to expand their knowledge, improve communication skills and get integrated into the international community. The analysis also discerned worrying patterns of students’ perceptions of learning languages, such as unclear reasons for learning languages and illogical shift of pronouns signifying the students’ avoidance of responsibility, the lack of self-confidence and referring to general values accepted in the society. The most important implications for teachers include monitoring their students’ perceptions and creating an effective educational environment; raising the students’ self-confidence and responsibility.

  • INTEGRATING MOBILE LISTENING AND PHYSICAL ACTIVITY TO FACILITATE
           INTENTIONAL AND INCIDENTAL VOCABULARY ACQUISITION

    • Authors: Tetiana Zubenko, Allan Shwedel
      Pages: 84 - 92
      Abstract: This paper examines the development and effectiveness of a strategy that promotes rapid vocabulary retention among university students who are learning English as a second language. This approach to vocabulary acquisition is based on research that shows that activating implicit memory has a stronger effect than simply activating intentional memory. The hypothesis was that listening to carefully structured mobile English vocabulary lessons during routine physical activity would have a significant and positive effect on students’ vocabulary acquisition and performance. The audio lessons were designed to introduce vocabulary by moving from L1 to L2. Participants (N = 51) were first-year Ukrainian university students majoring in English as a second language. Their average age was 17-18. They were randomly assigned to one of three classes, one experimental and two comparison. The experimental group used the “integrating physical activity with listening to vocabulary lessons” strategy in addition to the traditional intentional learning strategy used by the comparison group. The results indicate that performance on the End-of-Unit test benefitted students who were in the Listening While Physically Active group. Their mean score was 81.9 versus 63.2 for the Comparison group. Results from a one-way ANOVA indicate that exam performance difference was statistically significant, F= 8.761, df = 1 , p < 05. Mobile devices offer students multiple opportunities to listen to, and pronounce, new vocabulary based on  L1 to L2 translation while performing routine physical actions. This allows students to create not only receptive but also reproductive skills of L2 translation and communication

  • ICT IN TEACHING ESP TO FUTURE CIVIL ENGINEERS AT TECHNICAL UNIVERSITY

    • Authors: Erman Akıllı, Lesia Konoplianyk, Yuliia Pryshupa
      Pages: 93 - 99
      Abstract:  The paper analyses new technologies in teaching ESP to future civil engineers in their professional training. The research was held at the National Aviation University (Kyiv, Ukraine) and involved 86 second-year students majoring in “Civil Engineering” who study full-time. The distance learning profession-oriented course on the Moodle platform was applied in the experimental group as well as a set of intellectual games and brainstorming tasks. The study examined how students majoring in civil engineering perceive the implementation of ICT in the ESP learning environment and how these technologies improve students’ ESP proficiency and their readiness for self-educationand lifelong learning. A student survey was held at the end of the experiment. The analysis of the responses in the questionnaire with open-ended questions revealed that students had positive perceptions of using different forms of ICT in the ESP classroom. After establishing the appropriate psychological and pedagogical conditions, the number of students in the experimental group having the productive and creative levels of readiness to use English in their professional activity have significantly increased compared to the control group. On-line learning enhanced students’ motivation for self-study as well as improved their ESP proficiency.

  • FOREIGNERS’ INTEGRATION AND LANGUAGE LEARNING IN ADULT EDUCATION IN
           CANADA: EXPERIENCE FOR UKRAINE

    • Authors: Mariia Busko, Liudmyla Huk, Halyna Kuzan, Nadiia Vilkhovchenko
      Pages: 100 - 106
      Abstract: The article deals with the research of special features of foreigners’ integration and language learning in Canada as an integral part of adult education. The paper outlines a complex of basic scientific approaches such as system, structural and functional, andragogical, axiological, intercultural, and competency-based approaches. The study analyses a number of programmes for immigrants’ integration in Canada, as well as language learning by adults. Critical overview allowed assuming that “Language Instructions for Newcomers to Canada” is the most popular programme among immigrants in this country. Taking into account the lack of similar programmes for foreign students in Ukraine and positive experience of Canada in this sphere, Lviv Polytechnic National University developed an elective course for international PhD students aimed at their adaptation in Ukraine. The article focuses on the features of the course which is based on the “Language Instruction for Newcomers to Canada” programme. Its content component is based on the demands, individual needs and involves the acquisition of language skills and acquaintance with the culture of the country. At the end of the course, the PhD students took part in a survey. The results of the survey showed that in spite of some difficulties, it appeared to be quite effective and informative.

  • LINGUISTICS AND CULTURAL STUDIES INTEGRATION INTO SOCIAL AND POLITICAL
           SCIENCE COURSE

    • Authors: Wojciech Pomykalo, Oksana Omelchenko
      Pages: 107 - 111
      Abstract: This article reveals the meaning and content of the linguistic and cultural studies integration into social and political science course in the training of future politicians. The article reflects the importance of linguistic and cultural studies for the formation of language competence of students as well as skills of political communication, for understanding the characteristics of the country’s social and political issues. The interdisciplinary approach emphasises the relationship in the study of linguistic, cultural, and political agenda, characterises the interdisciplinary essence of regional studies. The critical discourse analysis (CDA) of political texts was chosen as the key methodological strategy for the efficient development of political communication and problem-solving skills. The authors propose the implementation of a special interdisciplinary course for the first-year students majoring in philology and political studies, focused on the studying the political and cultural features of a language-targeted country by means of CDA. We compared the results of students’ political communication skills development prior and post- course period and we observed the improvement according to the following criteria: perception of the vocabulary and functional language structures (by 17%); analysis of cultural and political agenda from the explicit and implicit language structures (by 23%); text annotation (by 50%); text production, distribution and target audience analysis (by 10%). Moreover, it was observed that CDA implementation facilitated the development of critical thinking skills as well as the skills of texts decoding.

    • Authors: Natalia Kuzminska, Iryna Stavytska, Valentyna Lukianenko, Olga Lygina
      Pages: 112 - 117
      Abstract: The article presents the experience of CLIL implementation in teaching students of economic specialities. The research shows that CLIL offers a solution to improving subject and foreign language knowledge. Students of Management and Marketing Faculty of the National Technical University of Ukraine “Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute” (n=83) were involved in the experiment. 46 students of the experimental group studied the Statistic Course by applying the CLIL methodology. Before the experiment, the criteria and indicators for assessing the students’ economic competence and the methods of evaluation were determined. The quantitative and qualitative results of the experiment represent the effectiveness of the methodology. The results indicate that students improved understanding of principles and methods of processing statistical data, and the ability to use statistical research in practice that positively influences professional development. Integrated learning improves interdisciplinary connections, intensifies motivation to study a foreign language, develops cognitive and practical skills. The results prove that CLIL allows increasing students’ level of economic competence.
