Keywords:authentic video materials, listening comprehension, material selection, design of activities.
AbstractThe current article is focused on the analysis of the impact that authentic videos have on the development of listening skills in a foreign language teaching process and on the ways to increase the effectiveness of authentic video lessons in terms of listening skills development. The implementation of authentic videos into the process of listening comprehension development has demonstrated good results in increasing the motivation of student officers, involving them into real communication process, demonstrating them the natural way of speaking, providing them with authentic cultural information and facilitating cultural adaptation. The involvement of students into a real communicative situation leads to freer adaptation of student officers to the foreign language environment while carrying out tasks in combined exercises or peacekeeping missions.
