The article deals with the problem of the educational paradigm shift from the teacher-centred conception to the studentcentred learning conception. The notion of “student-centred learning” has been under study. The student-centred learning conception has been analyzed. Strategies of self-directed study of a foreign language have been investigated; the autonomy levels have been specified; the most effective methods and techniques which are used in the student-centred learning have been singled out. The project work as one of the student-centred learning technique has been accentuated on.
