The article is devoted to the problem of modernizing the content and forms, strategies and tactics of linguocommunicative training of foreign students in the Russian-language business communication. It is noted that the strategic task of teaching Russian as a foreign language (RFL) in Russian higher education is the formation and improvement of the professional-communicative competence of specialists (in our case, in the field of economics and management), and the main tactical task is the actualization of all components of the named competence, especially language and speech subcompetences. To solve these problems, the authors propose variable educational models that meet the main criteria for the validity of a linguo-methodological product: 1) reliance on scientific knowledge of the mechanisms for the formation of verbal skills using foreign language tools, 2) taking into account certain pedagogical conditions for the implementation of foreign language learning, 3) reflection of empirically established communicative needs and cognitive preferences of a particular contingent of students, 4) use of the methodological approach that best matches the above stated factors. The proposed educational models are “built” into the discipline of RFL: as a specialty subject course based on the author’s textbook on business Russian with authentic audio supplement teaching aids; as a professional module of the pre-university course in RFL, based on the material of Internet resources on economic topics; as a professional module of the main university course in RFL based on the author’s textbook, using the authentic material of feature films / TV series as a didactic source.
