To achieve the set goal of training - forming the skills and abilities of professionally-oriented verbal communication in English of the future engineers of transport specialties a teaching methodology was developed. This methodology is based on the integrative model of training for professional verbal communication of transport workers, consisting of five modules: target, subject-content, conceptual, organizational-activity and control-result and is based on modeling situations of verbal communication. Under the level of language proficiency, as we determined professional-sufficient level, we understand a certain degree of development of the communicative competence of a specialist, necessary for solving professional problems in terms of the effectiveness of using language knowledge, speech skills and abilities. The mentioned levels are characterized by a different degree of formation of communicative skills; the quality of the statement (volume of the statement, degree of complexity, variety of language tools used, relevance of the language tools used, accuracy of transmitted / understood information); fluency of speech, a degree of confidence and independence in the process of communication.
