Orlov; Adapted Method of T. I. Ilina — Examining Motivation to Study in a higher educational institution (HEI); Diagnosis of the Level of Reflexivity Development by A. V. Karpov. The dynamics of change in the level of foreign language competence is very insignificant for students in the traditional form of education (control group), and it applies only to levels A1 (-8%) and A2 (+8%), that is, the lowest of the represented ones.
