Pyhtina Yu.G., Mendinova A.M. FORMATION OF LINGVOCULTURAL COMPETENCE IN TRAINING FOR READING FOREIGNERS: ON THE MATERIAL OF FANTASY GENRELinguacultural approach towards language teaching is vital as language learning requires the knowledge of linguisitc units of different levels. While being read and comprehended at «Russian for foreigners» lessons, culturally significant texts help students understand Russian mentality, develop analytical skills, and scrutinize some peculiarities of Russian life, traditions, values and stereotypes. Generally, this helps develop linguistic and cultural competence.
The search for new forms of cooperation is necessary to obtain linguistic, communicative and lingua-cultural competence while learning language. New material for the language teaching develops lingua-didactic and cultural aspects.
This paper substantiates the possibility of using authentic fantasy fiction for the Russian language learners. A system of pre-text and post-text exercises based on the «Taiynyi sysk tsarya Gorokha» (lit. «Tsar Gorokh’s secret inverstigation») by A. Belyanin is worked out.
The exercises are aimed at students’ linguistic and cultural competence development and can be used at the advanced stage of «Russian for foreigners» lessons.Key words: Russian for foreigners, linguistic culture, linguoculturology, linguocultural competence, teaching to read, fantasy.
