The actual task of education, in the trend of globalizing world processes, is teaching a professional foreign language. The development of international cooperation in the fields of education, medicine, natural, technical, and economic sciences requires the study and constant improvement of foreign languages.

The existing problems of education require a comprehensive solution. This solution will be achieved using the program-target method.

The weakest skill among university students was oral speech. This indicates that conversational skills are a weak point, which is confirmed during observations of classes. A survey of 500 students showed that speaking classes were rated significantly higher than classes for practicing other skills.

Thus the aim of the article is a theoretical analysis of scientific approaches of researchers to the problem of teaching a professional foreign language for specialists in various fields.
