Abstract

The aim of the article is to define the role and importance of the usage of the internettechnology in teaching English as a foreign language to students of non-linguistic departments. At the present stage of teaching foreign languages for specific purposes, one of the most important issues is the problem of motivating students to learn the language. The use of Internet technologies is considered to be an effective solution of this problem. Nowadays, information technology is an integral part of the society, which makes the use of such resources intrinsic to the educational process. Internet technologies allow teachers to create their own methodological elaborations that will be aimed at developing the necessary specific skills in the formation of foreign language communicative competence. For students of non-linguistic departments, the involvement of such resources is not only an effective and efficient means of developing key language competence in their field, but it also satisfies their need for interactive learning. The article examines the researchers’ points of view on the necessity of implementing Internet technologies in the educational process, and also studies external and internal factorsof influence on motivation of a modern student. To assess the effectiveness of the use of Internet resources in the classroom and in independent work, an experimental study has been conducted. Thus, the connection between the use of Internet technologies in the educational process and the increasing level of students’ motivation has been revealed.
