AbstractThe necessity to create update textbooks and course books for technical universities is one of the aims of this paper. First of all these needs must be satisfied by the course books designed by Russian authors. One of the most urgent problems of teaching a foreign language in a technical university is a lack of a good textbook meeting all the requirements of the program. The paper deals with some approaches to the theory of a textbook, the methodology of selection and organization of the texts for reading and relevant exercises. The authors share their experience in creating a course book for teaching reading professionally-oriented English and French texts designed for students and post-graduates.
