T. Peredrienko, E. Balandina, E. Istomina

Federal State Autonomous Educational Institution of Higher Education “South Ural State University (National Research University)” (RUSSIAN FEDERATION)
Nowadays Russian universities have the goal of taking a firm position in the international education system. New programs created by Russian government such as 5-100 are aimed at supporting high schools and integrating them into the world international scientific society. Twenty one Russian universities participate in this competitive advantage program, that helps to create a pleasant and competitive image of the whole educational system and thus to increase the number of foreign students completing various courses read not only in Russian but also in English.

Consequently university students in our country started to get education in a multilingual environment. Alongside with positive moments foreign students may face certain problems concerning intercultural communication and adaptation to a new pedagogical system. Although the ability of a student to adopt to a certain educational environment depends on the ability of the environment to consider the interests and demands of a particular student.

This article aims to analyse various factors influencing the effective educational process organized in the foreign language environment. To achieve this, the authors consider different peculiarities of such process among foreign students on the example of South Ural State University and determine the strategy of its improvement by examining some strong and weak points of the process organization.

By using a mixed methods approach (traditional research methods of observation, product analysis, comparing and questionnaire) the authors present the effective model of classes with the diverse range of modern interactive educational technologies. The authors also identify the structural elements of the model, methodology, motivation and assessment components. In conclusion the most important points directed to the development of the educational process organization within the foreign language environment are listed.
