The popularity of the Internet and computer technologies among young people and in society as a whole has created serious grounds for the successful integration of ICT into educational process. When teaching foreign languages an important place is given to ICT, which allows the introduction of new technologies, new techniques, shifting the emphasis to the independent work of a student, making the training diverse. This situation increases the effectiveness of the classroom work and makes the independent work of students more efficient. There is an opportunity to use the Internet as a teaching tool both for training all types of speech activity, and for research work and education.

The application of information and communication technologies in education has, in modern conditions, an increasingly significant impact on the quality and competitiveness of the national education system.

National standards of the ICT use are coordinated with international standards and regulations.

At the lessons of foreign languages, one should integrate the linguistic, sociocultural and communicative approaches, taking into consideration teaching a foreign language for specific purposes. To achieve these goals, it is very important to use the whole potential of Internet resources.

The Internet offers users various options that can be used by students and teachers: e-mail, participation in videoconferences, publication of research articles in the on-line system, numerous reference catalogs and search systems.

ICT assumes the use of such telecommunication technologies as computer training and test programs, electronic dictionaries for teaching students both professional vocabulary and reading in a special setting; telecommunication technologies, which give students the opportunity to participate in the dialogue of cultures through audio and video conferences.

ICT combines the advantages of various technologies within a single resource placing educational material in the form of electronic textbooks, audio and video files using hyperlinks. Using ICT, a teacher has an opportunity to monitor the knowledge and skills of students in the network, making the learning process more individual.

The undoubted advantage of using ICT is to achieve mobility of learning, because using e-mails and forums, teachers and students can provide feedback, they can receive the necessary consultations, using the time in the classroom more effectively. The use of ICT is more efficient within the framework of a certain model of training, developed in terms of the educational goals.

Training based on ICT technologies is an important competence of a modern teacher.
