Wide development of tourism and sports infrastructure in the Republic of Tatarstan, being one of the most popular constituent entities of the Russian Federation from this perspective, dictates certain requirements to modify the content of language education through the study of cultural and linguistic specificity of the region. At the same time the main purpose of realization of the regional component in a language university educational practice is the training of Linguistics Degree students the basis of the ethnic culture through the prism of a foreign language with its simultaneous inclusion into the set of world common cultural and moral values: understanding and respect of foreign culture, leniency and religious tolerance.
