The most important area of application visualization tools is linguistics and psycholinguistics.

By virtue of the fact that the description of any phenomenon, experiments or observations superimposed structural and semantic constraints and features of the language that provide this description, many scientific theories more or less susceptible to such influence. A visual representation of the structure and strict formalization of terminology will significantly reduce this impact.

This is most evident in the humanities fields of knowledge that use to describe the subject of the study not the formal language of mathematical or logical analysis, but the words of ordinary language. It gives them specific values within a particular scientific paradigm and terminology.

In 1930 K. Gödel has proved the incompleteness theorem to any formal mathematical system. However, these findings have not yet been adequately implemented in in the construction of formal systems in other branches of knowledge, which not developed strictly formal sign system and using natural languages as a tool for the analysis.

Gödel's second incompleteness theorem also implies that the consistency of a formal theory can not be proved by means of this theory. In other words, the set can be a subset of itself, the system model can not be a part of the same system, and the object of research should not simultaneously be a tool of this study to avoid inconsistency and logical contradiction.

Therefore, the imposition of tools of analysis of linguistic phenomena beyond the system under study, ie, natural language, was a very promising way of research and produced very interesting results. Development of Visual Meta-language and the use of the tools of mathematical, logical, and structural and visual analysis have created a new trend in language research, study of mental processes based on it, and developing new methods and ways of learning and languages acquisition.

This is especially true in today's globalized world with increased mobility of people, a huge number of international and cross-cultural communication and relationships, and grew out of the problems of integration in the different culture of immigrants, refugees, and their training and education.

Features of human thinking at the elementary level prevent the rapid integration in the new culture. Ordinary people are not able to keep track of their abstraction and not trained in the scientific way of thinking, so they tend to take over the properties of the surrounding reality, the properties of language to describe this reality.

This leads to the fact that in foreign language teaching the adults perceive a different language, a different grammar as a violation of the laws of nature and it is a totally inadequate structure to the world around them. This causes a strong internal opposition, emotional barriers, and cognitive dissonance.

The proposed approach makes it possible to separate the structure of knowledge from the words of the language, move the meanings into the intermediate sign system in the form of the Visual Models. And then, without effort and psychological barriers to say the same in the target language, using as a basic patterns of speech not verbal rules, but visual structure.

We have the full set of visual models for the major structures of the English language, and the pre-sets for the Russian and French languages.
