The article deals with the modern definition of the concept of lexical competence. The article describes the content and features of the step-bystep formation of lexical competence by sequentially passing from the stage of semantization through the stage of automation of the use of the lexical unit to the stage of its active use in speech. The publication substantiates the need to change the content of English language teacher training during higher education.

Moreover, vocabulary to be learned during each year of study is also selected according to the frequency of usage of these 3000 words. In particular, the publication argues that during the first year of learning English, it is advisable to focus to learning the 500 most frequency usage words. The publication reveals the specifics of the difficulties in teaching English of hearing impairments children, mostly on first semantization stage such as: low Ukrainian and Ukrainian Sign Language competence; unformed ability to understand the meaning of a word in context; limiting the use of accuracy to express all possible meanings of a word.
