The article proves that the TBL method fully justifies itself in modern conditions of education in a non-language university, where a foreign language is not an end in itself, but only one of the tools in solving life and professional tasks. The presence of specific goals that are clear to each student contributes to their motivation. It is important to harmoniously combine this method with a systematic grammatical and lexical approach, adapting it to the needs and capabilities of students as much as possible. And then the learning process will be not only exciting, but also as effective as possible. It is noted that one of the most difficult tasks facing foreign language teachers is to stimulate the imagination of their students, motivating them to study. In view of this, the process of finding and developing educational materials that can be used as an addition to the main textbooks for the course of study is one of the most important directions of the teacher's activity in lesson planning. For the most part, when planning an English class, teachers focus on the traditional PPP (Presentation, Practice, Production) approach – presentation (explanation of new material), practice, production (how students can apply the acquired knowledge in practice). It has been proven that this happens because this method is reliable and effective. This is the basis on which you can organize a series of classes. In addition, this technique is recognized as the best today, as it covers all areas of vocabulary and grammar of the textbooks or programs used. The advantage of TBL over traditional approaches is that it allows students to focus on actual communication before doing any serious language analysis. It focuses on the needs of students by creating communicative situations for them and gives them the opportunity to use all their linguistic resources to complete the task. The methodology helps students to clearly define for themselves: what they know what they don't know and what they still need to work on. Such practice helps students become more aware of their language weaknesses and encourages them to take (partial) responsibility for their learning. TBL works well for groups of students with different levels of language proficiency; the same task can be successfully completed by weaker and stronger students with greater or lesser accuracy and correctness. It is important that students with different levels of language proficiency develop communication skills and are aware of their individual learning needs.
