The article is devoted to an experience in German language teaching. The authors describe the process and results of a project named "Language learning based on literature creation". The project was held in the frame of home reading as one of the aspects in a foreign language teaching and learning. Working at home reading supposes reading, analysis and discussing a literary work written by a German author. Besides, this work includes word and grammar training. Taking in account the future profession of students (the faculty in question is International Journalism) the authors suggested the fourth-year students not only read the work of literature but also to create their own work for first-year students. The project work included some stages: choice of the subject, task distribution, work out of the plot, project implementation, preliminary evaluation, presentation of work results, final evaluation.

The main conclusions of the work could be the following.
1. Such project work is connected with the special subject. The students are upcoming journalists and writing skills are very important to them. Therefore, they can developed their skills not only in native language.
2. Creating a literature work is useful for developing team-working and communicative skills.
3. The student get a possibility to help the junior students and to motivate them for successful German language learning.

Such a work seems to become an innovative method based on a new creative approach to teaching a foreign language.
