Abstract

The article deals with the analysis of the educational resources for multilingual education in Western European countries. The essence of the literacy concept in modern society is characterized by multilingualism and new technical possibilities. In addition to traditional skills of reading, writing, speaking and listening in several languages it also includes mediation as a student's ability to help to individuals who cannot communicate directly. The other important factor is the changing nature of the text that is associated with the development of digital technology. Modern students are more accustomed to reading multimodal in nature texts on the computer screen than on paper without images, and they find work on the computer keyboard much more comfortable then writing in a notebook. Differences in positioning a textbook for learning a foreign language in the Western European and Ukrainian national scientific context are considered. In the sense of a "basic learning tool" it is not a mandatory attribute of Western schools. It is determined that the collection of educational resources for plurilingual education is characterized by heterogeneity. The number of multilingual manuals is actually very limited. Modern collection contains educational materials for visual perception in print, audio and video recordings performed alive and recorded on modern media, as well as examples of linguistic and cultural behavior exhibited over the Internet. It contains single, dual and multilingual educational materials for visual or auditory and combined audio-visual perception, and includes interactive learning tools. Characteristic features of a coursebook for teaching English are analyzed. They are: cultural versatility; ideological neutrality of the content; gender, racial and social equality; promotion of human values; presenting the social successful people and examples of safe behavior etc. The peculiarities of the modern approach to teaching the basic language of schooling are revealed. The analysis of educational materials for basic technologies of schoolchildren’ plurilingualism development in Western European countries is represented.
