Abstract

The article outlines necessity of developing an elective course “English for Business Communication” and its introduction in educational process of upper-secondary school. The author describes topics that comprise the content of the textbook as well as its structural representation. Data obtained in the process of upper-secondary school student and teacher surveys helped outline eleven key business-related topics which comprise the content of the textbook. These topics correlate with students’ professional interests and do not replicate the core school curricula of foreign language learning. According to the author’s concept, the textbook is based on module principle. Each module represents a self-sufficient didactic unit and covers several aspects, related to its main topic. In order to provide convenient work with the textbook these modules are structured into logical units (including self-assessment block). Didactic and methodological principles of organizing the content of the textbook are provided. Main technologies of acquiring skills of efficient business communication are explained.
