Abstract. We look at the challenges of developing lexical skills when teaching a foreign language for business communication to future specialists in logistics facing fewer hours and growing amount of unsupervised work of students. We suggest revising the contents of the conventional stages of teaching vocabulary. We substantiate the advisability of using the didactic potential of the online service Quizlet for teaching professional terminology to students of non-linguistic universities.
Keywords: professional communication; teaching vocabulary; stages of developing vocabulary skills; unsupervised work of students; online service Quizlet; non-linguistic university.
