The article deals with the sociolinguistic approach to foreign language teaching. At present, no one doubts that language as a means of communication arises and develops only in society. Therefore, language is a social phenomenon. Therefore, from the very beginning of the emergence of the science of language, linguists were interested in the problem of the relationship between language and society. In any society, language acts as a means of accumulating, storing and transmitting knowledge acquired by this society. Therefore, society and the social, economic and cultural changes taking place in it cannot but affect the various levels of the language. Equally, language has a significant impact on society. The literary processed form of any language, the stabilization of the norms of its use have a significant impact on the sphere of everyday communication, contributes to an increase in the cultural level of the speakers of this language, and leads to the gradual erasure of dialect differences. New words and phrases appearing in the language, new meanings of words expressing new concepts that have arisen in society, in turn, help people to become more aware of the world around them, to more accurately convey their thoughts.

Therefore, the problems of the relationship between language and society attracted attention and aroused interest among linguists from different countries and linguistic directions. But the degree of this interest and attention in different periods of time was different.

Social linguistics currently has such specific features that it is impossible to talk about a common understanding of the tasks of sociolinguistics, a single conceptual apparatus, goals and research methods. The researchers note that sociolinguistics is currently more of a set of problems and their solutions than a well-established discipline with its own subject of study and a well-developed methodology.
