In the article development of skills of self-checking is analyzed learning a foreign language by students at University.

INTRODUCTION

Mastering skills of educational activity self-organization when learning a foreign language by students is considered obligatory minimum. High level of skills development of educational activity self-organization in considerable measure defines success of training at the subsequent steps of education, and in this context the problem of self-organization skills formation which is a basis of the generalized way of educational activity organization is of particular relevance.

So, the important purpose of training is development of independent work skills in the course of educational activity in foreign language learning.

It is an important component of universal educational actions on mastering fundamentals of sciences, development of learning skills. It is formed with gaps in time, rather gradually. The students' training tasks are only creation of preconditions for the development of independent work skills in the course of educational activity: sufficiently high level of arbitrariness, the ability to plan and control their own actions, the ability to concentrate on the teacher's task, high level of activity and initiative, independence in educational work, the ability to assess the correctness of their own work implementation.

The direction of work should be noted. The direction of work is reflexive self-assessment formation (knowledge of their own knowledge and ignorance of their own opportunities and restrictions) which testifies two abilities: the ability to see yourself from the outside, apart from your point of view as the only possible, and the ability to analyze your own actions.

As a result of this work we, possibly, could study ourselves and teach (because it's not a skill yet, but a formation of it) not only to assess the limits of their capabilities, to fix difficulty, but to analyze its cause, that is to go beyond the boundaries of their own knowledge and skills, to speculate about the unknown. This eventually contributes to the reflective ability to control and estimate yourself. And this is the necessary level for the full formation of the self-organization skills.

METHODOLOGICAL FRAMEWORK

Attempts to analyze the general link between self-organization and self-control have led us to the fact that another contradiction is observed in this science field.

Most studies focused on the self-control of the discipline "Foreign language" based on the formation of separate groups of skills, in view of the fact that students' self-control activities are relative and independent steps of the educational discipline.

Some researchers consider the self-control as an inseparable component of self-organization and develop it as one of the self-organization skills, without separating it as a separate stage of educational process.

Most educationists, psychologists, linguists are of the opinion that the main task of students studying a foreign language is the ability to develop self-control skills and to master it completely. Self-control allows students to develop the skill critically evaluate themselves, which further will lead to the unconditional mastery of all kinds of self-control.

Self-control, as universal brain competence can be performed by different subjects, especially by a foreign language. We can confidently assert that the poor foreign language after graduating from a secondary school is due to the lack of self-control mechanism development. The teacher must teach their wards to master self-control skills, teach how to use them in full. It is necessary to remember that learning a foreign language - is a process that extended in time. In other words, students master a foreign language, in stages, gradually perfecting skills and self-control skills.

Speaking of self-control, as the realization of its development, two forms can be distinguished: voluntary and involuntary. …
