Abstract

Having analyzed the research of foreign and domestic scientists who are dedicated to developing communicative competence in English writing, we have come to the conclusion that this kind of writing is often neglected in English language courses in higher education and teaching it frequently lacks efficiency and intensity due to the lack of elaborated teaching and learning technologies. The research, submitted for consideration, was an attempt to create an efficient and intensive technology for the needs of teaching English to future specialists in that language at Ukrainian higher educational institutions using project technology. Such technology is intended to be based on observing a whole range of specially developed methodological principles for developing the communicative competence in English writing of future teachers of English on the basis of project technologies. The research completed demonstrates that introduction of project technologies into teaching English writing at linguistic higher educational institutions, beginning with the second year of the student’s English studies, should be based on three main methodological principles and ten subordinated ones that will provide organizational background, independence of implementation of students` project work and optimization of teaching English writing
