Features of medical terminology teaching in Russian as a foreign language lessons


We present the results of educational and methodical work during the implementation of activities on the issues of teaching Russian in a multi-ethnic environment in the Republic of Dagestan. The issues of identifying intercultural competence as a result and criterion of the education quality in a multi-ethnic educational process are considered. We also define the need for expanding the linguodidactic base for the intercultural competence development in teaching Russian through the inclusion of teaching materials with the national and cultural component. The specific practical examples (use of interactive educational technologies: the method of projects, case-study, web-quest) demonstrate ways of organizing educational activities aimed at the development of intercultural competence. The relevance of this study is confirmed by the presence of contradictions between the needs of modern society in effective intercultural interaction, highly qualified teaching staff, the requirements of regulatory documents and the insufficient level of potential use in the process of learning Russian in a multi-ethnic audience. Particular attention is paid to the methods of demonstrating students’ own national identity in a multi-ethnic environment and presenting native culture through the Russian language, issues of improving the professional competence of Russian teachers required for teaching in a multilingual environment and defining intercultural competence.
