Key provisions of the previous approaches to professional language training were mainly based on reproductive concepts of education, assimilating certain knowledge and skills. The priority in modern education lies on cognitively active methodology, which presupposes the development and disclosure of students’ creative abilities as well as educational, professional and communicative competences. We consider the current issues of modern education within the context of the formation of social, cultural, emotional and collective intelligence. The increased cultural potential of a foreign language in the global world and the use of modern information and educational technologies in developing communicative competences help to solve the task of overcoming linguistic, ethnic and cultural barriers by preemptively predicting and smoothing over communication failures in business.
