Resume. The article presents a study designed to develop professional and communication skills of students in the subject "Chemical Engineering" with German language teaching at the University of Chemical Technology and Metallurgy. During the application of the experimental model, the COVID crisis required switching to hybrid teaching. This brought a new focus on the teaching design in the 2019/2020 academic year. The research is based on self-regulated learning strategies.
The collected data offer a tool for developing professional and foreign language skills. It aims to optimize the educational process in engineering disciplines, as well as to enhance the foreign language knowledge acquisition: bilingual learning materials for improving the specialized foreign language learning.
Keywords: communication skills; foreign specialized language; bilingual training for engineers
