TEACHING MEDICAL STUDENTS’ PROFESSIONAL ENGLISH READING
ON THE BASIS OF INDIVIDUAL COGNITIVE LEARNING STYLES


SUMMARY:

The article deals with the issue of developing future doctors’ reading competency in professional English on the basis of individual cognitive learning styles. The notion “individual cognitive learning style” in the context of medical students’ professional training has been defined; the influence of the given notion on the efficiency of professional communicative competency development has been studied; the advantages of considering right and left hemispheres dominance as individual learning styles in the process of developing medical students’ reading competency in professional English have been grounded. The effectiveness of the suggested methodology has been verified and confirmed in the course of experimental teaching.


KEYWORDS:

 reading competency in professional English, individual cognitive learning style, medical students training.
