Аннотация: The article discusses the training of engineering students using video materials from technical sites. A new approach to teaching: combining reading texts from textbooks with watching authentic video materials lasting 3-5 minutes is proposed. Technologies in the field of engineering are constantly progressing and those innovations that were previously considered advanced are now outdated. Consequently, the content of training based on texts containing a description of outdated scientific developments, as well as the grammatical - translation method of teaching, does not meet modern training requirements, since it does not contribute to the formation of communicative, cognitive and perceptual competencies of future engineers.
