Abstract. The article is devoted to the problem of preparing a person for intercultural communication while organizing an educational process in a higher school. Reforms in the Russian system of education determine the requirements of the polycultural society to a future teacher, to the level of personal mastering of foreign languages, to the ethno-cultural preparedness. Such the personal preparedness identifies keeping the socio-cultural status by the person as a representative of the native ethnos and using this position as the basis to realize the developed personal abilities to interact and communicate with foreigners, who represent different cultures. Studying and analysis of the scientific and applied literature, the federal state standards has made it possible to reveal the ethno-cultural component in foreign-language professional competences (capacities), developed in foreign-language professional training of future teachers in higher school. Taking the given demands and the requirements to the teachers into consideration, we have defined the significance of linguo-cultural principle, which acts as the basis of foreign-language professional training of bachelors – future teachers. Educational process, organized on the basis of linguo-cultural principle, implies coherent applying of the system of methods to achieve the purpose of preparing the person to fulfill own abilities and the professional activity in the policultural society.

Key words: foreign-language professional training, professional competence, capacity (ability), linguo-culture, polycultural environment.
