Personal meaning of studying a foreign language in future teachers

Personal meaning of studying of foreign language is presented as a psychological structure which develops in the process of preparation for a pedagogical career. Sometimes, as it has been shown, it is centered around the need to master the ability to speak and not the ability to pass it to others. In such cases development of the communicatory-educational function in the future teachers of a foreign language is impeded. Provision of wider practical experience in the process of professional preparation can help to turn the student into an active subject of his professional activity and thus to develop in him adequate attitude to what he is being taught in a high school.
