HYBRID FOREIGN LANGUAGE TEXTBOOK: EXPERIENCE AND PROSPECTS OF USING

Abstract. The relevance of the article is determined by the
changes in language education. It is about a new communicative
digital space and political and social transformations in the modern world. As a result, a new learner has appeared: one who now
lives in the new political context that allows the effaced borders
and does not depend on administrative bottlenecks to move
around our world; one who now lives in the new social context
that allows a considerable increase in knowledge of general education; one who now lives in the new communicative context
that makes communication available whenever and wherever the
person is; one who lives in the new psychological context under
the permanent pressing of the lack of time; one who lives halfway on the digital space which causes the change of his or her
cognitive abilities. The author analyzes the demands of the new
generation students in foreign languages acquisition and the
principles of a building a modern foreign language textbook capable of meeting these needs. It seems the best moment to intro-duce the new “hybrid textbook” which combines in its content
and structure the potential of educational digital space and the
approaches of traditional didactics. This new learning tool should
allow the teacher to build his course inreal space as well as in
digital space. It must also allow the student to leave the classroom and to build his or her language skills in the quasi authentic
situation. We should not forget the competition between languages. So, the new «hybrid textbook» must make learning
French as a foreign language more attractive and lucid. We
should remember about determining good level of foreign language as well. This is an important subject because today the society needs citizens successful in professional life as well asin
social life in the context in the 21st century life which is quite
different from the context of the past centuries’s life. In addition,
we can no longer ignore the role of today’s information technologies and communication in all areas of contemporary life in
general and in language teaching in particular.
