his paper examines the use of cultural approach to teaching English as a foreign language to university students, who are actively involved in intercultural communication in their professional development. To improve the quality of English teaching care should be taken of fostering multifaceted personal and professional development in future specialists. Many modern researchers have explained the need and rationale for a wide range of cultural studies in combination with foreign language teaching.  However, the concern remains as to content selection, forms of work and technologies that provide students’ active interaction and complete immersion.

The paper focuses on the research questions: What professional training can English teachers have in the context of global culture?  How can cultural knowledge and understanding be incorporated into the context of English language classes? What specific strategies can make students more culturally competent? Findings show that future English teachers have a better awareness of art and culture if the culturally sensitive approach to foreign language teaching is used in their professional training as it enables them to use new knowledge of a culture in situations of intercultural communication. It supports them in becoming more job-oriented. Cultural studies boost their motivation and create the atmosphere of curiosity and openness. 34 respondents took part in the questionnaire.
