The article examines the teaching of Russian as a foreign language and Russian language and culture of speech from the point of view of modern innovative approaches. The relevance of this work defines it. Modern approaches in education are communicative competence, student-centred and professionally oriented training. The aim is to analyze the content of communicative competence, student-centered and professionally-oriented approaches in teaching Russian language at the University, and to consider tutorials that implement these approaches.The author used two groups of methods in the writing of this article: methods of analysis, synthesis, generalization, and special: system-structural, functional and cognitive approaches.The basis of the communicative competence approach is communicative-oriented language teaching. It involves the formation of communicative competence. Communicative competence includes linguistic, sociolinguistic and pragmatic components. Special attention is given to the analysis of these components.Student-centered teaching assumes the recognition of the student as the main actor in the learning process. Implementation of student-oriented learning system requires a change of vectors in pedagogy: from a severely regulated learning, built as a normative process, to study the individual activity of the learner with the support of the teacher. Implementing this approach at the lessons of Russian as a foreign language and Russian language and Culture of Speech contributes to the use of interactive conversational learning.Professionally oriented teaching at the University involves teaching Russian language as a means of obtaining a degree and teaching Russian language as a means of professional business communication. Professionally oriented teaching language in high school must be implemented through integrative, interdisciplinary connections through the cooperation of Russian compatriots with the subject teachers.In conclusion, the author writes that the implementation of modern approaches in teaching Russian as a foreign language and Russian language and Culture of Speech gives good results.
