Abstract: The article gives a summary of new approaches and ideas presented at an international forum of English language teachers organized by the British council in Moscow. Cambridge University Press authors presented new facilities available in teaching English through “blended learning”. These programs enable teachers to use both traditional face-to-face methods and online work. Such programs as “Touchstone”, “English 360” are very flexible. They stimulate students’ independent and individual work, make monitoring and evaluation easy for the teacher. Richard West in his talk shared ideas about making in-house materials with communicative tasks. ESP students should participate in looking for relevant materials on the Internet and developing them for their fellow-students. It helps to use only up-to-date information, to improve students’ IT skills, to shift teaching-learning balance.
