Abstract: The article analyzes the problems of preparing and creating a professionally oriented course book on French as a second foreign language, taking into account that authentic teaching materials are difficult for elementary level Russian-speaking students. The purpose of developing a specialized course book on a second foreign language in the professional sphere is in line with the modern Russian society demand for training bachelors of non-linguistic majors who can speak several foreign languages in their field. This demand is explained by the lack of such specialists, which confirms the relevance of the study. “Syllabus for teaching French as a second foreign language for students of the economic university majoring in restaurant business” has been designed as well as an experimental course book, the purpose of which is the acquisition of specific foreign-language communicative competencies required in this professional field. The article objectively explores the specificity and difficulties in organizing the process of teaching French as a second foreign language after English or German. The authors explored in detail goals, principles, methods and techniques of professionally-oriented training in language activities, presented in national and foreign methodological literature. The authors presented and gave scientific reasons for content selection and methodological organization of educational materials in their course book. The authors used various methods of scientific research: the study of authentic course books and materials in Restaurant Business, comparative analysis, questionnaires, experiential learning and experiment. The analysis of the experiment and experiential learning results clearly showed a high level of performance and mastery of the communicative competence in the experimental groups.
