The paper deals with the issue of English language training for IT-specialists at Ukrainian universities. Understanding the importance of studying foreign languages has been confirmed by a number of normative documents. Peculiarities of professional training of IT-specialists at higher education institutions with the focus on foreign language training are considered. Pedagogical conditions for formation of communicative competence of IT-specialists are analysed. The content analysis of existing English language course books and textbooks for IT-specialists has been conducted to find out the content of foreign language training. It is stated that English language teaching aids in information technology, computer engineering, computing and software engineering can be used in the learning process, however, their use requires thorough refinement and modification. The series of guides and manuals for teaching English for professional purposes are presented.
