The article reveals the content of the concepts "competence", and "competent approach" in the context of the process of teaching foreign languages. The traditional objectives of teaching foreign languages in connection with the modern competence approach are considered, as well as the leading role in the formation of the communicative competence of foreign language teaching, since it reflects the subject area of "Foreign Language" most accurately. Language is the most important means of communication, which is essential for the existence and development of a human society. Today public relations are changing, means of communication require to increase the communicative competence of students, improving their philological training. This raises the status of the subject "Foreign Language" as a general educational subject. Communicative competence is characterized by a range of student’s abilities that are manifested in the speed, depth and strength of mastering means and methods of activities, such as: the ability to listen, accept and reproduce the information; to have a dialogue; participate in discussions; negotiate; ability to persuade the interlocutor and defend your point of view, that is to communicate. Changes in educational paradigm from knowledge to competency approach prompted many researchers to seek the realization of this problem within specific subject areas (mother tongue, mathematics, physics, biology, foreign language, etc.) both in Ukraine and abroad. We do not speak just about understanding this phenomenon, but about its component composition.
