Senior students with philological specialisation are taught on the basis of a communicative-cognitive approach, which provides in-depth knowledge of language phenomena and develops communicative abilities and skills. The development of gifted students’ potential is the most important task of the current education system.

The important components of such a system are: the particular orientation of the conception of giftedness and specialized education; the identification of the level of giftedness and aptitude for the philological sciences; the assessment of the framework for giftedness development, the design of techniques and methods for teaching and learning, as well as the nurturing of the creative potential of senior students with philological aptitudes for their further self-realization during their philology studies and their practical work as philologists.
