National Aspect Of Modern Rfl Teacher Language Personality
The modern anthropocentric paradigm of scientific knowledge influences pedagogical concepts, in particular, the features of the teacher’s personality and the student’s personality. The personality of a student becomes not an object, but a subject of the pedagogical process, (i.e. he/she is an active participant), which increases the motivation to study and effectiveness of the learning process. In these conditions teachers have to meet special requirements. Regardless of their specialties, a large number of foreign students, who come to Russia, learn Russian. Thus, it is urgent to study the problems related to the personality of the RFL teacher. The authors of the article describe the specifics of RFL teacher’s language personality verbal and semantic, cognitive, and motivational and pragmatic levels and how they influence the students’ personalities and the effectiveness of the pedagogical process. The study focuses on the national aspect of RFL teacher’s personality. The material of the article and illustrations of the theory are based on our experience of teaching Russian as a foreign language. In accordance with the objectives of our study, we analyzed different types and forms of lessons (explanation of the new material, revision, lesson-excursions, etc.) given by different teachers who work in various higher educational institutions. We also focused on a variety of the Russian language classes for students with different language skills.
