In terms of international integration processes in the system of higher education of the Republic of Kyrgyzstan and an increase in the proportion of foreign students, the issue of development of the communicative competence of future specialists becomes crucially acute. An analysis of foreign practice shows that the developed foreign concepts of teaching the “English language” academic discipline are being implemented with great difficulties. The scientific novelty of the study lies in the attempt made by the authors to answer the research question posed in the article related to the substantiation of the conceptual foundations for the formation of communicative competence in the course of studying the “English language” academic discipline using multimedia technologies. The assessment of the reliability of the presented results is based on an integrative approach, on the methods of analysis and synthesis
of scientific literature. A comparative analysis of foreign experience in the formation of students’ communicative competence shows that the problem under study has not been sufficiently developed. The components of communicative competence are substantiated. The existing foreign concepts of the formation of communicative competence are analyzed. The analysis of domestic and foreign studies made it possible to establish that most of the scientific provisions put forward in the concept, characterizing the features of the formation of communicative competence using multimedia technologies, have been confirmed in other studies and do not contradict them. The results of the study are important for the theory and methodology of teaching English in higher education.
