Problem Solving in Teaching Foreign Languages to Students of Pedagogical Departments
AbstractThe goal of the suggested article is to review some existing research dealing with application of problem solving to education and to offer some practical recommendations for methods of teacher training in foreign languages based on problem solving. The essence of problem solving in education is first of all acquisition of methods of gaining new knowledge independently, based on application of existing knowledge and skills. Thus, it is quite logical that this approach is particularly productive in teaching foreign languages to future teachers of any subjects. Several aspects of application of problem solving in teaching a foreign language are being discussed. The article suggests a description of a class dealing with the application of problem solving towards teaching a foreign language.
