Summary/Abstract: In order to fulfil their basic professional functions on a ship, sailors must possess not only qualitative knowledge but also be able to solve complex professional-productive and scientific tasks independently, as well as to orient themselves freely in a foreign-speaking society. Taking into account the interdisciplinary approach to the theoretical preparation of future specialists for performing their functional duties at sea, where multinational crews mostly communicate in a foreign language, it is natural to turn to the actualization of knowledge in the discipline «Professional English», since all legal documents in the basis of marine professional activity are in a foreign language. Paying particular attention to the graduators from Ukrainian maritime higher educational establishments, the author investigates the role of their professional communication in a foreign language and peculiarities in forming competitive national specialists in a world maritime fleet. The integration of the acquired knowledge in different situations, their realization in concrete skills of future professional activity, and creative approach of cadets contributed to the emergence and growth of the desire to improve their knowledge, participation in dialogues, role plays, discussions, emergence and development of interest in the implementation of future professional activities in a foreign language. The updating of professional communication in a foreign language contributes to the formation of national specialists, competitive in the world maritime fleet, which is one of the stages in the realization of the geopolitical interests of the Ukrainian state.
