Implementation of the sociocultural competence of “students” in speech in their native and foreign languages


It is well known, that by using language any text reflects the achievements of culture as a product of people’s social activity, that is, the sign system of the language makes it possible to convey the content of culture. Thus, we establish that when comparing different languages in the working process with the corresponding texts, the recipients of textual information acquire the specificity of certain cultures and the singularity of those languages through the prism of which the nature and content of these cultures is transmitted. We note that a full-fledged intercultural dialogue largely depends on students’ assimilation of the cultural code inherent in the linguistic society of the target-language country. We provide definitions of the constantly supplemented and still open concept of “culture”, formulated by foreign and domestic cultural experts. We state the position that a broader understanding of culture cannot be interpreted without close connection with the particular people’s life, without taking into account the differences between representatives of different peoples. We give concrete examples of how the reality reflected in texts through images not only allows us to better understand and comprehend it, but also affects various characteristics of the person receiving this information. We confirm the position that the study of foreign languages has an impact on the development of the personality mental world, enriches it with knowledge of a foreign language culture, and is of lasting value. We conclude that the text as a product of oral and written speech characterizes the individual culture of the personality, which is developed, in particular, in the learning process.
