Summary/Abstract: The main goal of teaching specialized languages is to develop the necessary competences for performing different profession-related tasks. International projects and developments require team-work and verbal interaction in foreign languages. In the language-teaching process, speaking skills can be developed through role-plays. In this study, we have made an attempt to reveal engineering students’ and engineers’ attitude and opinion related to role-plays in language learning, and explore those job-related situations in which they will need to use the target language.
