Abstract: The first step in the work with the new language users is understanding, the second – mastering the basics of the language, acquiring the ability to answer ‘yes’ or ‘no’ or to use short phrases; the third step – formation of the speech when a learner starts answering in short sentences. However, it is most important to develop a positive attitude of all learners taking into account everyone’s individual abilities, life experience and skills as well as to observe/ to consider their age peculiarities. It is important to create a friendly, exciting atmosphere in language teaching, which is based on the previous experience of the learners (for example, songs, food, dances, people’s names etc.).
