Phraseological practice at English language lessons


Abstract. We describe phraseological practice at the English language lessons. Phraseological units are fixed expressions, the meaning of which is not determined by the meaning of the component parts of this expression. The study of phraseological units is essential not only to understand the culture of native speakers but also to develop and enrich the students’ speech. The research considers phraseological practice in the student course in foreign languages, namely English, phases of working at lexemes, including phraseological units, namely introductory phase, primary testing and practical use in monologues and dialogues. The research also describes practice types of a certain phase and offers a set of exercises for phraseological practice, which is useful for formation and development of lexical skills. The use of the complex approach to phraseology learning enables students to understand the meaning, to identify the units in texts and speech that will encourage their further use in students’ own speech. It will allow students to be on the next level of language mastery.
