To test and describe seven modern technologies for teaching a foreign language, aimed at professionals in the field of life safety. Determine the didactic value of each of the technologies.

Methods. Analysis of existing classifications of pedagogical technologies, their parametric characteristics, criteria for their reproductivity. Comparison of the described technologies in terms of their applicability to the adult audience. Approbation of seven technologies developed to train specialists in the practical use of a foreign language in the field of life safety. Generalization of the results of the application of technologies developed taking into account the professional interests of specialists in the process of their foreign language education.

Five technologies are predominantly social, that is, they are based on interpersonal communication, and two relate to information and communication technologies, that is, they are implemented in an electronic environment without direct interpersonal interaction. The didactic value of each of the technologies is determined, based on its classification parameters, which are relevant for specific conditions of application of this technology.
