Learning English for students of the State University of Telecommunications is connected not only with studying grammar rules and vocabulary, writing imaginary life situations, but also with the development of communication skills. From the first class, professor conducts thematic conversations exclusively in English, students, even those who have not previously communicated in English, learn basic words on the topic, get used to the sound of the language and try to join the conversation with the professor and groupmate. This communicative method helps students overcome the language barrier, learn to listen carefully to the interlocutor and understand him, be able to support the conversation and answer questions without making mistakes. The educational process takes place in three stages. At the first, the professor tries to start an exciting discussion based on the statement or statement of a famous person. Each of the students can think over the judgment, express their own impressions of what they heard and try to give examples from their own lives. The professor listens to all answers, accepts them and asks his own questions to support the conversation. During the second stage, students learn new vocabulary or grammar. Consolidation takes place at the last stage, when students communicate with the professor, perform exercises, and practice speaking skills. This method of communication is of interest in studying not only the grammatical and lexical material of the English language, but its use during communication, it provides opportunities to learn free communication for future professional activities, traveling abroad.
