Abstract.  The twenty-first century is the century of the explosion of scientific knowledge. In this vein, special importance is given to foreign languages, especially English, which is a multifaceted and effective tool for mastering new competencies, a means that unobtrusively allows you to expand a person’s horizons and raise his general cultural level, as well as develop professional skills. It is during this period that the English language tightly penetrates into everyday life. It becomes the language of science, sports, travel, cinema, literature, global contracts and high technology. English has long become an international language that has a great influence on a person’s life and almost every area of his activity. It continues to strengthen its position as a universal communication tool, more and more people are involved in the exchange of professional vocabulary and its replenishment with slang expressions. That is why the topic of economic slang in English always remains relevant. The subject of this study is the lexical language units of the economic profile. The object of the work is the possible difficulties that may arise in the study and subsequent use of these units in speech in practice, as well as ways to eliminate them. The relevance of the article lies in the fact that it is important not only to determine the complex of English business idioms most in demand in professional speech, but also to identify the quality of their perception and assimilation by students of specialized faculties. The novelty of the article lies in the fact that for the first time slang units of the English language are shown directly from the sphere of economics, their structure is described, and some recommendations are given for memorizing these units and their application in practice in various speech situations. This allows students studying economic disciplines to trace interdisciplinary and meta subject connections, which will positively affect their linguistic and profile performance. The article is recommended for teachers of foreign languages, methodologists, students, undergraduates and graduate students, as well as a wide range of people interested in the English language.

Keywords: slang, English, abbreviation, idiom, competences.
