TOOLS OF LANGUAGE OF CORPUS IN THE CLASS OF FLE: MOTIVATIONAL AND COGNITIVE ASPECTS

Abstract: The article explores the results of experimental work aiming at the study of motivational and cognitive effects due to the use of linguistic corpus tools. Two groups of students of third year of FLE were working on the semantic differences of Russian and French spatial and temporalprepositions. Experimental group were doing the task with use of corpus tools, control group – with the traditional methodical support of dictionaries and student books. Our primary hypothesis was that the opportunity to apply digital technologies will grow the level of students’ motivation and, simultaneously, will strengthen students’ declarative implicit knowledge and procedural explicit knowledge structures. The results of questionnaires and diagnostic exercises proved the hypothesis.
