These components include the improvement of general English competence, as well as general and narrow professionalization of English instruction. The authors describe the stages of efficiency testing of experiential ESP instruction using the new textbook “Professional Basics”. The study is suggested to be organized on the basis of the aspected approach, which stresses the necessity in studying such components as subject, sociolinguistic, linguistic, psychological and communicative aspects. The factual results of the experiment and estimation of the proposed methodology efficiency are given. It is stated that the textbook and the methodology proved their high efficacy in learning outcomes – all groups showed the general increase in all types of communicative activities. The outcomes of the questionnaires completed by the students after the experimental study under the proposed methodology are also presented.
