The article deals with the process of teaching English to the future specialists in media communication. The author defines the requirements for the content of the English language teaching aimed at this category of students with regard to the analysis of current documents regulating the process of foreign language teaching and the results of modern research into the theory and methods of teaching foreign languages and professional education in general. In order to achieve the main objectives set in the article the main principles and recommendations of the following documents were analyzed and taken into account, namely, Common European framework of references for languages, National Curriculum for Universities for English for specific purposes, the Syllabus for English for Special purposes for Journalism (Bachelor degree, Master degree) etc., the main objects of the analysis being the aims of teaching, levels of performance, principles of teaching, the set of competences that need to be developed, content organization both for a Bachelor and a Master programme. All these target parameters were specified in terms of teaching ESP as part of the professional training of specialists in media communications. The author gives recommendations about the use of CLIL approach according to which the language must be taught alongside with special professional disciplines following the same order of topics. Nevertheless, this approach will prove to be appropriate and efficient provided that there are certain organizational conditions and it is recommended that it should be used for teaching separate themes or modules. One of the key ideas suggested in the article with a view of teaching ESP to media communication students is the use of Cambridge international standardized examinations such as FCE and CAE as a basis for building the English language syllabus in which general English themes will be complemented by the ESP topics and materials.
