In the last few years there have been dramatic changes in the world, uniting people in all spheres of life. Changes have taken place in education too, where the Sorbonne (1998) and the Bologna (1999) Declarations prompted the creation of the European Higher Education Area. However, those global changes aimed at closer collaboration and cooperation between countries and peoples are inseparable from the promotion of language learning and teaching and the development of communicative competence in other languages: In response to societal expectations and requirements (see, for example, Academic Mobility Decree), Ukrainian university administrators focused their attention on making teaching foreign languages at the tertiary level – in particular, ESP (English for Specific Purposes) – more effective. ESP reform has already led to particular success, with more and more university graduates being fluent English speakers who successfully represent Ukraine at the international level. Still, problems exist. They impede further progress, but, on the other hand, they also determine the directions for further development.
