Learning a foreign language has become a necessity in modern society's development. The knowledge of foreign languages contributes to the adaptation of a person to rapid changes in world society. In modern conditions, there is an urgent need for highly educated people with critical thinking skills who would be able to analyze a large flow of information and make informed decisions. To achieve this, it is necessary to pay great importance to the quality of education.
The methodology of foreign language education is closely interrelated with didactics as both sciences study the educational process. As it is known, didactics considers the educational process as a whole, and the methodology of foreign language education deals with studying a specific subject and identifying the features of foreign language education. The main function of a foreign language in school is the formation of communicative competence, that is, to teach students to communicate to transmit the information received in a foreign language. In foreign language lessons, educational goals are realized while students solve communicative tasks, and patriotic feelings and feelings of tolerance for their own and foreign cultures are formed and developed among students. When learning a foreign language, harmonious personality development occurs, and her horizons expand. The purpose of foreign language education is to develop the student's potential, which determines the humanistic direction of modern education (Borisenkov, 2004).
