DOI: 10.24411/2470-1262-2019-10033

Abstract:

The aim of the article is to find out the structure levels and content components of future foreign language teachers’ linguo-sociocultural competence. The issue is based on the analysis of modern approaches to definition of this cognitive-active phenomenon.

According to the modern scientists’ views linguo-sociocultural competence is the complex of cognitive, activity and personal components. The knowledge about units of the different language levels: the word, the word combination, the sentence and the text form the cognitive component. The communicative skills in the socio-cultural sphere and professional interpretation of language units with the national-cultural meaning are the base of activity component of the competence and training the future specialists in teaching foreign languages. The personal attitude to the language and sociocultural facts and phenomena, the positive approach to the moral code and ethical rules of native speaker’s behaviour belong to the personal component.

In this article the idea of two levels of each component: linguistic and extralinguistic has been offered. The sets of language units which form the linguistic levels have been characterised. The extralinguistic level forms the corresponding blocks of knowledge and skills for operating these units. The amount of each set has to be coordinated with the level of language competence.

The results of the investigation can be used in the educational process to prepare teaching materials, textbooks and manuals for training the future foreign language teachers’ communicative and professional skills in sociocultural sphere. 

Keywords: activity, cognitive and personal components, foreign language teachers, linguistic and extralinguistic levels, linguo-sociocultural competence
